Federation Internationale de Football Association lift Kuwait worldwide ban

Federation Internationale de Football Association lift Kuwait worldwide ban”

In a grand gesture combining great sportsmanship with diplomatic maturity that has been the hallmark of Qatar's dealings with its neighbours throughout the ongoing blockade, the country has offered Kuwait the opportunity to host the prestigious regional Gulf Cup football tournament. "The tournament will be played on a single round-robin format", said Balushi.

Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahrain have pulled out of the eight-team tournament last month following a deepening row with Qatar.

The lifting of the suspension came after the Kuwaiti parliament agreed on Sunday to amend sports laws in a bid to end the suspension of the country's sports teams from global competitions by Federation Internationale de Football Association and the worldwide Olympic Committee. Kuwait's Parliament adopted a new Sports Law of Kuwait that replaces its previous laws and is amended to reflect the obligations presented by the International Football Federation's (FIFA) Statutes.

Infantino was visiting Kuwait to announce the eagerly-anticipated decision.

The country was also banned from worldwide competitions by FIFA over alleged interference in the national football association. The ban had already prevented Kuwaiti clubs from participating in the continental AFC Cup and the Kuwaiti National Team from playing in the FIFA World Cup 2018 Qualifiers and the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.
