Federation Internationale de Football Association warns broadcasters about focusing on 'hot women'

A new dawn for Russian tourism

A new dawn for Russian tourism

Powar said with Russian authorities also keeping home-grown hooligans away from games, the World Cup had an global crowd "very different to the fans that come to domestic football".

Croatia's current generation has mostly lived in the shadow of Šuker, Boban, Prosinečki and the success of the "Bronze Generation", though tonight they have an opportunity to surpass the already monumental July 11th date, and be the team to take Croatia one step further - the World Cup final.

Sexism has apparently been a bigger problem than racism at the World Cup, diversity experts Fare Network director Piara Powar said.

"We can confirm that a report has been filed through the anti-discrimination monitoring system in relation to chants of a possible discriminatory nature by English fans at yesterday's match", Federation Internationale de Football Association said.

Sexism has apparently been an issue in Russian Federation at the World Cup, and it looks like FIFA is starting to do what it can to counteract it.

Powar added there had been several cases of female reporters being grabbed or kissed whilst on air.


"If you come to this tournament with prejudices, and don't like people from a different nationality, then generally you're in the wrong place", he said.

Anti-discrimination group Fare Network has been working to monitor discriminatory behaviour around World Cup games. The fines started at 10,000 Swiss francs ($10,100) for a first incident.

The subject arose today in a review of FIFA's anti-discrimination program in Russian Federation.

Speaking before yesterday's match between Croatia and England about FIFA's anti-discrimination program in Russian Federation, diversity boss Federico Addiechi said eliminating those type of shots is part of the "natural evolution" of broadcasts.

We have done it on a case-by-case basis when some cases arose and they were pretty evident.

Argentinian referee, Nestor Pitana, with his assistants, Hernan Maidana and Juan Belatti, will officiate the final match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the World football governing body announced on Thursday.
