DUBAI, United Arab Emirates - The Iranian girls football team can compete at the Youth Olympics as long as its players swap their traditional head scarves for a cap that covers their hair, Fifa said yesterday.
The compromise comes after Fifa initially barred the Under-15 team from participating last month over its insistence on wearing head scarves.
Fifa barred hijab scarves, which protect the modesty of Islamic girls and women, in 2007 for safety reasons and to prevent political or religious statements on the field.
The Iran Football Federation and the Iran National Olympic Committee confirmed their acceptance of the compromise. - Sapa-AP
