Cheetahs Leave National Soccer Team Jerseys

The picture of Asiatic Cheetah that was printed on the shirts of Iranian soccer players in the 2014 World Cup will not appear on the costumes in the 2018 event as per the decision of the Iranian Football Federation. 
According to federation officials, the logo is eliminated due to the sponsor's refusal to include it in the shirts' design. 
The news was first announced by the head of the federation, Mehdi Taj, in a television program, ISNA reported. 
Later, Hedayat Mombeini, director of IFF's marketing committee, provided details saying that Adidas, the leading sportswear manufacturer that is supplying Iranian footballers' apparels in the World Cup, has not agreed to print the logo. 
"The special technology of Adidas with ventilation holes would have been disturbed with the picture of the cheetah printed on it," he explained.
