Iranian women were allowed to attend a major football match in Tehran Saturday, in what is being seen as a possible step toward the country ending its longstanding ban on female fans at men’s sporting events.

Hundreds of women were in the stands for the Asian Champions League final between Persepolis FC and Japan’s Kashima Antlers at Tehran’s Azadi stadium.
