Getting into reporting
Presence of women in stadiums
In 2017, while reporting on the Iran-Syria match, he saw pictures of Syrian women attending the Azadi Stadium and spoke about the presence of women in the stadium. This comment caused him to be fired from hosting and reporting for a while, and because he was a regular participant in the Football Bartar program at the time, his vacancy was so palpable that this absence was noticed by the people.
Seyyed Morteza Mirbagheri, Deputy Director of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting, regarding the rumored ban on the employment of Peyman Yousefi, regarding his comments on the presence of women in stadiums, said:
Peyman Yousefi is not banned from reporting and hosting, however we have advised our executive friends to express their views based on national interests and the network and program in which they work. When we give a tribune to someone, that person has a specific mission, and if he wants to make a point without expert work, they do not take into account the dimensions of this statement and what cost it creates for the network and the program. If people are going to comment on everything, it is unprofessional. Peyman Yousefi did unprofessional work, but it was not forbidden to be reporter and presenter.
But his absence for some time from game reports and football programs reinforced the rumor.
Refers to the censorship of IRIB
"The fans in the stadium cheer for the national team and are full of excitement. They have not lost hope and still hopefully cheer for our national team, whether we see them or not!"
Reappearing on TV
Yousefi later returned to television to report the England-Slovenia match, but was seen only as a reporter and was not given a video presence as a presenter. He finally resumed hosting a football program after a short time away from the camera.
