Rules for women at Supercoppa

It’s reported women will only be allowed in one section of the stadium when Juventus and Milan contest the Supercoppa Italiana in Saudi Arabia.

Despite objections from human rights campaigners, the sides will face off in Jeddah on January 16.

The Middle Eastern country is known for some repressive laws aimed at women, and La Stampa reports no female fans will be allowed outside of the family section.

That section comprises around 15 per cent of the 60,000 seats, and women won’t be allowed to sit elsewhere in the stadium.

Previously women were banned from entering stadiums, but the grounds in Dammam, Jeddah, and Riyadh have sections for female fans.
