FIFA Lifts Ban On Kuwait

Kuwait can return to international football after FIFA lifted the ban after more than two years. Kuwait was suspended in October 2015 over a government bill which the global soccer body said interfered in the independence of the country’s FA and fell foul of the FIFA statutes.

FIFA said in a statement that the lifting of the ban followed official confirmation “that the Kuwait Parliament has adopted a new Sports Law of Kuwait, which replaces all the previous ones and has been amended in order to be fully compliant with the FIFA Statutes and requirements.”

The lifting of ban allows Kuwait’s national teams and clubs to participate in international competition.
