KUWAIT CITY:

Arab Times - - FRONT PAGE -

The Kuwaiti foot­ball sus­pen­sion cri­sis re­cently turned to­wards a new pos­i­tive curve ac­cord­ing to news pub­lished by a Qatari news­pa­per, stat­ing that the Qatari Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion took the ini­tia­tive to per­suade FIFA to adopt the new sports law pro­posed by the Kuwaiti gov­ern­ment in an at­tempt to end the in­ter­na­tional ban im­posed on Alazraq Foot­ball Team since Oc­to­ber 2015, re­ports Al-Qabas daily.

Mean­while, other news re­ports re­vealed that FIFA’s Ex­ec­u­tive Com­mit­tee is seek­ing to amend the penal­ties by­law to al­low the sus­pended fed­er­a­tion to join its teams (First, Olympics, Ju­niors and Se­niors) un­der the flag of the In­ter­na­tional

Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion (of­fi­cially and friendly).

This de­ci­sion al­lows Kuwait to par­tic­i­pate in in­ter­na­tional as­sem­blies, sim­i­lar to the In­ter­na­tional Olympic Com­mit­tee to join other banned coun­tries along with in­de­pen­dent ath­letes un­der the Olympic Flag.
