Nice: FIFA says it was wrong for people campaigning for women to be allowed into Iranian soccer stadiums to be removed from a Women's World Cup game in France.

Stadium security officials intervened in Grenoble during Saturday's game between New Zealand and Canada when they spotted T-shirts campaigning for women's rights in Iran.

 

In a statement to The Associated Press, FIFA says the "fans should not have been asked to remove their T-shirts or to leave the stadium by local security."

FIFA is pledging to "do its best to ensure that any similar situations do not occur at future matches during the competition."
