FIFA Warns Networks to Stop Focusing on Women in World Cup Stands

Apparently, sexism has them beat.

"We can confirm that a report has been filed in relation to chants of a possible discriminatory nature by English fans", said Federation Internationale de Football Association.

Before the commencement of the tournament last month, there were fears that homophobia and racism would be the major areas of concern but FARE said sexism has been the main focus of discrimination.

Piara Powar, FARE executive director, however, praised the host nation Russian Federation noting that all fans were warmly welcomed and enjoyed their stay throughout the month.

Instead, soccer's treatment of female media workers and fans provoked debate.

He added there had been around 30 cases of reporters who had been accosted on air.

"We hope that this World Cup will have a long-term impact on Russian society".

Three games at the U-17 FIFA World Cup in 2013 preceded a call-up the following year for the World Cup in Brazil.

Federation Internationale de Football Association has already intervened with broadcasters "on a case-by-case basis when some cases arose, and they were pretty evident", Addiechi said.

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

It is unclear if the "no surrender" chant breaches FIFA's rules on discrimination.
