FIFA Ask Broadcasters To Reduce Shots Of Attractive Female Fans

Football's governing body FIFA has instructed television broadcasters to stop focusing on "hot women" fans attending 2018 World Cup matches in an effort to tackle sexism.

He said the organization will look into reducing cutaways to female fans. He estimated up to 10 times more unreported cases where Russian women were targeted.

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.

Powar said about half of those reported incidents involved female broadcasters being "accosted while on air".

Sexism has proven a constant issue in Russian Federation over the course of the World Cup and there have been several cases of female television presenters being groped and kissed by male fans.
