A STORY OF THE WOMEN'S HISTORICAL DAY IN THE FORBIDDEN PLACE "AZADI"
There is a stadium in Zahra Aliee’s country, Iran, called “Azadi” which means “freedom” in Farsi, but ironically women are not allowed to enter it. During the Asian Champions League 2018 final match, some women got permission to enter this forbidden place for the first time. Although Persepolis getting to the final was an important event for Iranian football, it was a different experience for female journalists and fans. It sparked hope for a dream to watch a match in a football stadium, which became possible through all the strict rules that the Asian Football Confederation put in place, to hold an international match worthy of the ancient continent. Aliee was there as a sports journalist. With all of its shortcomings, Azadi Stadium witnessed the presence of women who just were given their “freedom” back for 90 minutes, and this is the story of her being among 200 women on a historic day for football in Iran.
