Iranian Women Allowed To Enter Football Stadium For First Time In Decades

Iranian women will be able to officially enter a football stadium for the first time in 40 years on Thursday.

The initial allocation of 3,500 tickets for female fans was quickly sold out in under an hour.

According to CNN, an additional 1,100 tickets were released for the match at the national Azadi Stadium.

Iran's ban on women attending sports stadiums is not a law but was put in place after the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
