The women’s national futsal team is scheduled to play two friendly matches against Italy in Tehran on Thursday and Friday.

Iran is preparing for the 2018 AFC Women’s Futsal Championship slated for next May in Thailand, Tasnim News Agency reported.

The women’s team claimed the title of the first edition which was held in Malaysia in 2015.

Friendly matches will give our players experience and knowledge of modern futsal since Italy is one of the world’s strong teams. Our players need to get more experience for the AFC Futsal Championship,” head coach Shahrzad Mozaffar said.

Iranian and Italian football federations signed a memorandum of understanding in Oct. 2014 to boost mutual cooperation.
