FIFA suspends Kuwait Football Federation

our camel

FIFA has suspended Kuwait from all international matches and activities because of the government interference in the affairs of the football federation.

Contrary to the road map established by FIFA and the AFC, the Kuwaiti Public Authority for Youth and Sport has continued to interfere. Elections were held on 9 October in direct violation of the FIFA Executive Committee’s May 2007 decision to the contrary. As a consequence, the committee recommend to the FIFA Executive Committee that the Kuwait Football Association be suspended. [Link]

Kuwait’s federation were to have held their general assembly in September but delayed it for Ramadan but after no meeting took place Blatter said the Kuwaitis had been “definitively suspended” from international matches. [Link]

This is now the second time FIFA has banned Kuwait.
the interference of goveremt on Kuwait football and its management I’d a unarguable reflection of kuwait’s politics and the govt’s mismanagement of kuwait as a whole.

Its 100% the fault of the kuwaiti officials they look like they dont care about anything,they gave them alot of time to fix things but they didnt they even told them to elect only 5 people to be in charge instead of 14 people in any country and they didnt do so ! and no one even card to explain anything they are just silent !

@ Herolike : lol 😉

But serious, it’s a real pity for soccer in Kuwait. So many opportunity’s and talents (watch link – docu about Sayed Abdullah) are in danger by these measures of the FIFA. Sanctions which easily could have been avoid.

it’s not like we’re going to last in any international tournament for too long
