We discussed this with individual broadcasters. We also held discussions with our film crews.

Before the championship experts expressed concerns that the problem would be racism and homophobia. However, Piara Powar, executive director of FARE (“Football against Racism in Europe”), called sexism the main form of discrimination seen at the 2018 World Cup. The cook explained that mostly male fans were molesting Russian women.
