Women banned from Iranian Euro 2012 TV events

Rebecca Hawkes RapidTVNews | 12-06-2012


Live public television screenings of matches from the Euro 2012 football tournament are no longer open to women in Iran because they constitute an "inappropriate" environment, according to a senior police commander.
"It is an inappropriate situation where men and women watch football in [cinema] theatres together," Bahman Kargar, Iran's deputy police commander in charge of social affairs told the ISNA news agency.
"Men, while watching football, get excited and sometimes utter vulgar curses or tell dirty jokes. It is not within the dignity of women to watch football with men. Women should thank the police [for the ban]," he said.
The practice of watching the publically televised matches from the UEFA tournament in Poland and Ukraine follows similar coverage in Iran of the 2010 FIFA World Cup and the AFC Asian Cup in 2011.
The big-screen live TV events have proved popular with couples and families in the football-mad republic.
