The AFC, the Asian soccer governing body which has 47 members including Iran, said on Tuesday it was working to help world soccer governing body FIFA find an “amicable solution” that would allow Iranian female fans to attend future games in Iran.

Iranian female fans have long campaigned to be allowed to watch men’s soccer and occasionally a limited number of women have been allowed into the stadium. In June, some women were detained by security forces when they went to the Azadi Stadium for a friendly against Syria.
