Fifa fines country’s football federation over chants

Iran have been fined by Fifa after fans were asked to sing religious chants and wear black at a World Cup qualifier played on a holy day in the country.

The 1-0 victory over South Korea at Tehran’s 100,000-seater Azadi Stadium was held on the first of two mourning days on the Shia Muslim calendar.

Fifa said the £37,000 fine relates to “several religious manifestations”.

World football’s governing body prohibits political, religious or commercial messages at matches.
