(FILES) This file photo taken on December 6, 2017 shows a general view of the Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad International Stadium in Kuwait City, one of the venues of the 23rd Gulf Cup, during a tour of the facilities by FIFA president Gianni Infantino. Despite being an unlikely host only weeks prior, Kuwait, record winner of the Gulf Cup with 10 championships, will return to hosting the 23rd edition of the championship on December 22 after FIFA lifted a suspension placed on the nation in 2015 over alleged government meddling in sports.
After Kuwait's suspension, the tournament was switched to World Cup 2022 host and incumbent Gulf Cup champion Qatar, but those hopes were dashed after the region's worst political crisis in years erupted in June 2017.
