A member of the Board of Directors of the Kuwait Football Association, Abdulaziz Al-Samhan, spoke about the misorganization of the opening ceremony of the 25th Gulf Cup in Basra, Iraq.

A member of the Board of Directors of the Kuwait Football Association told “Your Newspaper,” “They slit the pocket of my dishdashti (jilbab) with a razor (a sharp instrument),” and left “Buki” (they stole my wallet).

He expressed his astonishment at the “stampede, crowding and thefts” despite the deployment of Iraqi police forces.

The Kuwait Football Association had complained about what it described as “poor organization” at the opening ceremony of the 25th Gulf Cup in Basra, Iraq, on Friday, after a controversy arose over a stampede in the VIP area.

The federation confirmed that Fahad Nasser Al-Sabah, head of the Kuwaiti Olympic Committee and representative of the Kuwaiti prince who came to attend the tournament, withdrew with his accompanying delegation, according to “statment”.

The Kuwait Football Association “expressed its strong dissatisfaction with the poor organization of the opening ceremony of the 25th Gulf Cup in Basra, and the resulting mass stampede and overcrowding that prevented the entry of the representative of His Highness the Emir of the country.”
