About us

The apparent lack of coverage of the Iranian football team outside of Iran inspired us to do something about it. The summer leading up to World Cup 2014, we decided to create a project to bring the footballing community together as a whole. The podcast since then has been able to provide a unique platform for fans of Iranian & Asian football to gain a better perspective on Iranian football. In addition, Gol Bezan has been able to help agents, players, coaches, journalists, and other members with any help or issues they need. Lastly, Gol Bezan has been able to deliver exclusive interviews, in-depth analysis, up to date football news, and our work has been published in various respectable media platforms across the globe. Every country has a story to tell in football and this is ours to the world!
