Gol Bezan is Iranian Football's 1st Dedicated Podcast. We cover everything surrounding the Iran National Team, Persian Gulf Pro League & Legionnaires. We exclusively interview players, coaches & other notable figures within Iranian and Asian football. All links.

About Us

The apparent lack of coverage of Iranian football outside of Iran and in the English language inspired us to do something about it. The summer leading up to the 2014 World Cup, we decided to create a project to showcase Iranian football to wider international footballing community. 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. Gol Bezan has been able to deliver: exclusive interviews with players, coaches, journalists and many key figures; in-depth analysis of Iran national team, Persian Gulf Pro League, and foreign-based players and up-to-date news on social media. 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!
