Iranian TV ‘Cancels’ Bayern Munich Game Broadcast Because Female Referee Was Wearing Shorts.

Footage of women in revealing attire including shorts is censored in the chiefly Islamic country.

Steinhaus has previously appeared in a game shown in Iran, however broadcasters cut to shots of the crowd to avoid her.

The 39-year-old is arguably the highest profile female official operating in the sport.

Last season, Steinhaus became the first women to officiate in one of Europe’s top five leagues when she took charge of Hertha Berlin against Werder Bremen in September 2017.
