In Offside, a 2007 Iranian film directed by Jafar Panahi, girls who try to watch a World Cup qualifying match are forbidden by law because of their sex. Female fans are not allowed to enter football stadiums in Iran on the grounds that there will be a high risk of violence or verbal abuse against them.
