Kuwait Football Association's General Assembly members elected Sunday Sheikh Ahmad Yusuf Al-Sabah to chair KFA, in an extraordinary session attended by representatives from FIFA and Asian Football Confederation (AFC).

The General Assembly members also elected Ahmad Oqla as vice-president.

Saad Enad, one of the members, told reporters the rest of KFA board were Ahmad Ajab, Maan Al-Rushaid, Jaber Al-Zanki, Khaled Al-Shemmeri, Fahad Al-Mutairi, Ibrahim Al-Ansari, Salem Saadoun, Fahad Al-Hamlan, Ali Al-Mutairi, Abdulhakeem Al-Kanderi and Sabeeh Abul.

Fatma Hayat has been elected for the women seat.

Thirteen clubs attended the General Assembly meeting. Qadsia was absent.

Sheikh Ahmad, in a statement following his election, said KFA's hands would be open to all clubs and that a meeting would be held on Tuesday to discuss a strategy.

Sheikh Ahmad was KFA president in 2004-07 and between October 2017 until last February.

FIFA announced last February appointment of a committee to run KFA until May 20.
