Three things for September 23
1. FIFA states that Iran should allow women to attend sports events
The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) announced Saturday that after visiting Iran to preview the country before a World Cup qualifying game next month, they are eager to dismiss the ban on women attending sports events.
The ban, which has been in effect for 40 years, does not allow women to enter any sports games—including the World Cup qualifying game. FIFA stated they met with government officials on Thursday and discussed “international relations, security and ticketing matters,” to make progress in allowing women the right to attend all sporting events in the country.
2. Volleyball and Men’s Soccer hold matches at home
Volleyball is up against the University of West Georgia Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 6 p.m. in Walker Arena. Following volleyball, men’s soccer will be out on the soccer field Tuesday at 7 p.m.
Both teams are starting their seasons off strong with volleyball leading 6-4, and men’s soccer, 3-1-1. The chance to support the Flames before they travel throughout the rest of their season is here, as well as the opportunity to earn points for games with the Lee Flames Hotspot App.
