After a two-year absence, the Malavan women’s football team has returned to Anzali city under new ownership. In 2016, a controversy erupted among Malavan fans when the club’s CEO remarked , “We have many mouths to feed. When a storm-lashed ship is sinking, it starts unloading extra burdens.” This statement was widely criticized for being sexist, undermining women’s capabilities in playing football on par with men. However, now the team is back, and many former players have returned to Anzali city to support their team.
After two years!
