Suspension of the Kuwait Football Association
FIFA has suspended the Kuwait Football Association (KFA) after a deadline for changing a government sports law was not met, the world soccer body said on Friday.
The suspension follows the decision of the FIFA Executive Committee during its meeting on 24 and 25 September to give until 15 October 2015 for changes to be made to the sports law of Kuwait.
The suspension will be lifted only when the KFA and its members (the clubs) are able to carry out their activities and obligations independently. As a result of this decision, no team from Kuwait of any sort (including clubs) can have any international sporting contact (art. 14 par. 3 of the FIFA Statutes), and neither the KFA nor any of its members or officials can benefit from any development programme, course or training from FIFA or the AFC.
