Hundreds of Iranian women have been allowed to attend the Asia Champions League final in Tehran, Iran's semi-official Isna news agency reports.
Axar.az reports citing Foreign media that the move is being seen as a possible end to more than 35 years of exclusion of women from top matches.
Most were said to be relatives of players or members of women's teams. The match is between local team Persepolis and Japan's Kashima Antlers.
Football's world governing body Fifa is working with Iran to end the ban.
Last month about 100 women were allowed to watch a friendly between Iran and Bolivia, but restrictions were quickly reinstated.
In March this year 35 women were detained for trying to attend a match between Persepolis and fellow Tehran team Esteqlal.
Fifa's president, Gianni Infantino, was also in attendance at that match, along with Iranian Sport Minister Masoud Soltanifar.
