FIFA have received assurances that Iranian women will be permitted to attend football matches in the future, following the recent tragic death of a female fan earlier in September.
Iranian women have been banned from attending games contested between men since the Islamic revolution in 1979, and this law has stood ever since
"We need to have women attending," Mr Infantino explained during a FIFA conference on women in football.
"We have been assured that as of the next international game of Iran... women will be allowed to enter football stadiums.
"This is something very important - in 40 years this has not happened, with a couple of exceptions."
Iranian football hit the news earlier this month when a female supporter died following her rejection from a stadium.
