    Surely the men will just wear a burka to get in as it is protected under international Human rights laws.

    You can see from that photo that Turkey is not Saudi Arabia - although it is not a feminist utopia, it is far more liberal than many other countries that have a majority muslim population. I can't imagine that too many women who go about fully covered would be going to watch a football match and I have read that (as I thought they would) there were female security officers checking those who entered.

    What an awesome idea.

    I tell ya that could be a marketing stroke of genius.

    Young kids and their mums getting to see a match for free, initiates a whole new generation of fans.

    I say adopt it over here.

    Actually this was a punishment given by FA to Fenerbahce due to its fans invading the pitch in a friendly against Shakthar back in July. Previously, the punishment was to play against empty seats. I really dont expect this kind of actions from English fans, so dunno how can it be adopted into Premier League.

    However, they are doing something else too. A percentage of the stadium's capacity is bought by the FA and handed over to women and children in every match. This can be adopted, and I believe it's a brilliant idea.
    Maro,
