Kuwait: FIFA President Gianni Infantino announced here that a two-year ban imposed on Kuwait's football federation has officially been lifted.

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.

The Emir expressed his gratitude to the FIFA head for his support for Kuwaiti athletes. Last Sunday, the Kuwaiti Parliament agreed to amend sports laws.
