Iran has submitted an application to host the 2015 World Wrestling Tournament, ISNA reported.

Along with Tehran, there are Las Vegas, Panama city, New Delphi and Sochi among cities who wish to host the 2015 World Wrestling Tournament.

The world wrestling tournament usually includes three types of championships, free-style wrestling, greco-roman wrestling, and womens wrestling.

All championships are held in one country, simultaneously.

Iran, which is bound by religious regulations, does not have female wrestling in the country, and the religious laws do not allow female wrestling due to specific clothing.

According to ISNA, if Iran's application is approved, and the country gets the right to host the tournament, it can host the women's wrestling championship in another country.
