    Default World Cup 2018: Fifa warns broadcasters about focusing on women

    Broadcasters have been ordered to stop their cameras zooming in on "hot women" in the crowd at football matches, Fifa's diversity boss says.

    Federico Addiechi said football's world governing body needed to help tackle sexism at the World Cup.

    "We've done it with individual broadcasters. We've done it with our host broadcast services," he said.

    Anti-discrimination group Fare Network says sexism has been the biggest problem at Russia 2018.

    It has been monitoring games and says it has "documented more than 30 cases".

    Asked if the crackdown on cutaways of female fans would become official Fifa policy, Addiechi said: "This is one of the activities we definitely will have in future - it's a normal evolution."

    He said it was not yet a "proactive campaign" but said Fifa would "take action against things that are wrong".

    Who gets to decide who is 'too hot' and who is 'ugly enough' to be zoomed in on? Surely by not discriminating, you are discriminating...

    "Diversity boss". Another word for "a SJW fookwit desperately in need of 2 years hard labour on a farm in Russia".

    No need to stop showing good looking women, just show an equal amount of good looking men and the complainers will have nothing to whine about.

    I never apologise. I’m sorry, that’s just the way I am.

    Well the female lovelies and uglies get to watch a ball being kicked by fit men. It is not too much to ask for good football with a sprinkling of lovelies inbetweeen.

    FIFA should be focusing on eliminating corruption and fraud in its ranks before it starts becoming the so-called authority in other issues.
