The draw held in the presence of representatives of the participating teams which are Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, Iraq and Yemen.

In a meeting Monday in Doha, the Competitions Committee of the Arab Gulf Cup Football Federation (AGCFF) approved that Khalifa International Stadium will host the 24th edition of the Championship which kicks off on November 27.

The committee also adopted the university stadiums to hold team trainings and said that a reserve stadium next to Khalifa International Stadium will be selected soon.

The local organising committee of the 24th Arabian Gulf Cup of the Qatar Football Association (QFA), is chaired by QFA Vice-President Saud Al Mohannadi.

The Qatari national team is the best rated team at the international level in this tournament, where it is ranked 62 globally as a result of its excellence in the tournaments in which it participated in the recent period, most notably winning the title of the AFC Asian Cup in the UAE.
