Kuwait, Dec 7: FIFA chief Gianni Infantino announced here that a two-year ban imposed on Kuwait’s football federation has been lifted officially.
Meeting Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah on Wednesday, the FIFA chief said he hoped the lifting would be the start of a new era for the football-crazy Gulf nation, Xinhua news agency reported.
The Emir acknowledged to the FIFA head for his support for Kuwaiti athletes. Last week on Sunday, the Kuwaiti Parliament agreed to amend sports laws.
FIFA banned Kuwait’s national football federation in connection with alleged government interference in the running of the country’s football governing body.
