Football’s Beauty- Women & Children Only

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 this is a first this is a plan
this is no dream or illusion
when men behave badly
the out come will sadly
result in this stunning solution

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 the beauty of football will not be denied
for women and chidren out there
who follow with passion
and not just for fashion
who never do fight or swear

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 it’s starting in Turkey but soon it may spread
like butter or even wild-fire
and we’ll see never more
games behind some closed door
now they’re raising the stakes even higher

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 it could be the start of a new football world
it could be the end of it too
but if it’s the saviour
of bad crowd behaviour
it’s ok by me…how ’bout you?

Turkish Clubs Face Women & Children Only Crowds for bad crowd behaviour by Males>

Turkish clubs whose fans are involved in crowd trouble face having all males over the age of 12 banned from their grounds as an alternative to playing games behind closed doors.

The Turkish Football Federation policy means that only women and children will be allowed in to matches for the duration of a ban. Children will need ID to prove their age before being granted free entry.

The TFF said: “After this decision, which is a first in world football, there will be no silent and unexciting games played without spectators. The change will make teams remember the beauty and values of football.”

The first match subject to the new ruling will be Fenerbahce’s game against Manisaspor. Fenerbahce were sanctioned after fans invaded the pitch during a friendly against the Ukrainian champions Shakhtar Donetsk in July, forcing the game to be abandoned.
