VIDEO: Iranian women disguise themselves as men to watch Persian Gulf Pro League game

Wear wigs and fake beards to see Persepolis FC crowned champions.


Here is one of the six Iranian women who dressed up as men to see Persepolis FC crowned champions for a record eleventh time.

Wearing a man’s wig and a fake beard, she joins in with the fans’ singing as her favourite team won 3-0 against Sepidrood Rasht.

Women are banned from entering stadiums in Iran, although FIFA President Gianni Infantino – who was also at the game – claims to have had assurances from Iranian President Hassan Rouhani that there are plans to overturn this.
