FIFA Ask Broadcasters To Reduce Shots Of Attractive Female Fans

"This is one of the activities that we definitely will have in the future - it's a normal evolution", Addiechi said when asked whether it was now an official policy.

Racism was predicted to be the main World Cup problem because of longstanding issues in Russian football and other European fan bases.

Match of the Day host and former England striker Gary Lineker has voiced his opposition to the move, writing: "FIFA's 2022 World Cup in Qatar will take place between November 21st and December 18th".

It's been sexism, not racism or anti-LGBT discrimination that's been the biggest issue in Russian Federation according to Fare Network, an organization that aims to "combat inequality in football and use the sport as means for social change".

During the singing of the national anthem before the game, some England fans shouted "no surrender" - an anti-IRA chant that has been heard before the team's games for many years.

However, he acknowledged that the number of incidents on the streets may have been 10 times higher but not reported.

While not part of a "proactive campaign", Addiechi said of the anti-sexism stance, the organization will "take action against things that are wrong". Despite previous fears that fans would be targeted with homophobia and racism, the treatment of women has become the focus after a range of female reporters were grabbed or kissed on air, according to the Fare Network. A study published by sociology lecturer at Deakin University, Kim Toffoletti, exposed the new ways in which sexism in sports media works. In what can be called as objectification, young and attractive women have often found screen time, evoking responses from the broadcasters as well as fans. About 700,000 of the Fan IDs went to worldwide visitors, he said.
