It doesn’t happen often in the world’s top leagues, but once in a while, our furry friends take part in the match. Animal sightings at Premier League, Ligue 1 or Bundesliga games are infrequent, but if we go further down the line of world’s vast array of leagues, we will find places where, more often than not, fans get to see animals invading pitches with more frequency than their human counterparts.

It’s common for people to look like a famous celebrity or someone’s long-lost cousin. But have you ever been told you look like an animal?

In Iran, women are banned from attending soccer games in a co-ed setting. Even though the sport is popular across both sexes and there is no official ban on women going to sporting events, soccer stadiums are a male-only affair. Women are regularly denied access at the door, making it impossible for them to attend any sporting event.
Iran argues that the ban against women in the same sporting stadiums as men is necessary because it protects them from fighting and rude language that might spread within the stands.

Yesterday, the New England Patriots took on the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI. Everyone was ready to call it quits at halftime when the Falcons were crushing the Pats 28-3.

Coach Bill Belichick must have had one hell of a half time speech for his team because the Pats returned to the field after half with a whole new perspective.
It was a surprise to everyone, but the Patriots came through and won their fifth NFL title.
