Endangered Asiatic Cheetah is a symbol of Iran, Japan friendly match scheduled for Tuesday in Tehran’s Azadi Stadium.

Asiatic Cheetah was imprinted on Team Melli's jersey during the 2014 FIFA World Cup, where the Iranian football team failed to advance from the group stage.
Managing Director of the Project to Protect Asiatic Cheetah in Iran Hooman Jokar said the sport can play a key role in raising awareness of people.
The Asiatic cheetah, also known as the Iranian cheetah, is in serious danger of extinction.
The cheetahs are estimated to number to as few as 50 cats in the wild in a fragmented population in central Iran, mainly in the Dasht-e-Kavir.
