In this month’s episode, the World Cup brings women’s rights into focus. I interview Iranian activist Sarah of @openstadiums. We discuss her campaign to allow women access to stadiums for sporting events in her home country of Iran.
The construction of Wembley stadium was both over budget and late in its completion. I look at the possible long-term implications of a governing body without a national stadium as the F.A’s proposed sale to Fulham F.C owner Shahid Kahn, appears to be gathering steam,. Later in the show, I review the media’s treatment of Raheem Sterling ask whether there will come a time when athletes call out their critics.
