I came across this sad and tragic news as I was browsing the site. 5 fans sadly passed away as they were trampled to death when fans exited the AZADI STADIUM in Tehran after the World Cup Qualifier with Japan that Iran ended up winning 2-1.

40 others are reported to be injured.

You can pay your respects to the victims in this thread. It is a sad tragedy. Deaths and football should remain far apart.


R.I.P

RIP :(

The atmosphere in the stadium was amazing, but when I saw the images, I thought that there were too many people, the stands looked too crowded, as if there were more people than real places. This is really sad.

FIFA Regulations for stadia are not strict enough. The authorities once again are too obsessed with making money and do not focus enough on the safety of fans. In England we have strict regulations on stadia, and I think it is time the rest of the world followed suit.

R.I.P. those 5, they died thanks to the pursuit of money by footballing authorities. How many more will we need before something is done?
