World Cup marred by "significant" sexism outside the stadium

FIFA Ask Broadcasters To Reduce Shots Of Attractive Female Fans

FIFA has ordered World Cup broadcasters to stop zooming their cameras in on "hot women" in the crowd during matches, to help prevent sexism in football.

Meanwhile FIFA's head of sustainability and diversity, Federico Addiechi, defended differing sanctions, such as 70,000 Swiss francs (70,000 dollars) for Croatia not using official drinks during a match and 10,000 francs for Mexico due to their fans' homophobic chanting.

He said: 'We've done it with individual broadcasters.

Sexism has been a bigger problem than racism at the World Cup in Russian Federation, with more than 30 cases reported, Piara Powar, executive director of the Fare network, said on Wednesday.

Before the tournament began, the biggest concern was homophobia and racism would be a problem.




While the crackdown isn't steeped in policy yet - Mr Addiechi said it is "one of the activities that we will have in the future, it's a normal evolution".

Powar shed light on how instances of female reporters being kissed or grabbed on live television are becoming a common phenomenon at this year's World Cup. Instead, soccer's treatment of female media workers and fans led to heated debate.

Incidents during reports from the World Cup have drawn attention to the journalist's movement to end sexism and harassment.

Federation Internationale de Football Association has employed teams of specialist observers at all World Cup matches to detect possible racist and homophobic chanting and banners at matches.

Recently, photographic agency Getty Images had published a photo gallery titled 'the hottest fans at the World Cup which featured pictures of some young women.
