Eight Iranian Women Dress As Men To Sneak Into Men-Only Football Game

In Iran, women are banned from attending soccer games in a co-ed setting. Even though the sport is popular across both sexes and there is no official ban on women going to sporting events, soccer stadiums are a male-only affair.

Here’s How MLS Player Acquisition Works And Your Eyes Will Bleed

But, the game is not over until the ref blows the final whistle, and when the time came and the ref blew the final whistle the game was tied up at 28-28.

It was a surprise to everyone, but the Patriots came through and won their fifth NFL title.
