Federation Internationale de Football Association lifts Kuwait's 2-year ban from global soccer

FIFA lifts Kuwait football ban

FIFA President Gianni Infantino is in Kuwait to confirm the government is no longer interfering in how the soccer federation is being run.

The global football federation, FIFA, has lifted a two-year suspension against Kuwait's football association that has prevented the country from participating in worldwide tournaments.

Infantino was visiting Kuwait to announce the eagerly anticipated decision.

The Bureau of the FIFA Council lifted the suspension of the Kuwait Football Association on December 6 as a result.

On Sunday, the Kuwaiti parliament passed a new law in line with FIFA's requirements and on Tuesday, Kuwaiti clubs elected the head of a new football federation.

The ban proved so controversial that it led to the resignation of former minister of information and youth Sheikh Salman Humoud Al-Sabah in February ahead of a no confidence vote against him by the country's parliament.

The country was also banned from worldwide competitions by FIFA over alleged interference in the national football association.

Kuwait remains suspended by the International Olympic Committee.

Kuwaiti athletes did not compete in FIFA's 2018 World Cup qualifiers due to the ban and could only compete at the Rio 2016 Olympics as an independent team.
