The Open Stadiums group called on FIFA to exclude Iran from the final of the World Cup, which will be held in Qatar in November.

Haruts Sheva reports.
< br /> The organization said that Iran should not be allowed to participate in the tournament due to the treatment of women.

On Thursday, Open Stadiums sent a letter to FIFA President Gianni Infantino, noting that Iranian officials continue to deny football fans the right to attend games in Iran.

“The Iranian Football Association is not only an accomplice in the regime's crimes. This is a direct threat to the safety of fans in Iran and wherever our team plays in the world. That is why, as Iranian fans, it is with a very heavy heart that we must express our deepest concern about Iran's participation in the upcoming World Cup,” the organization said in a statement.
