Qatar is gearing up to host the 24th Arabian Gulf Cup, which will kick off at Khalifa International Stadium on November 27.
The tournament, which is organized by the Arab Gulf Cup Football Federation (AGCFF), will be contested by five teams, with all the matches taking place at Khalifa International Stadium, which recently hosted the IAAF World Athletics Championships.
The General Secretary of the AGCFF Jassim Al Rumaihi said: "We are proud to be hosting the Arabian Gulf Cup in Qatar for the fourth time and look forward to hosting thousands of fans from across the region. We welcome everyone to enjoy this festival of football."
For his part, Chairman of the 24th Arabian Gulf Cup Local Organizing Committee and Vice President of Qatar Football Association Saud Al Mohannadi said: "Qatar's hosting of the Arabian Gulf Cup is another opportunity to test the country's event hosting expertise as we continue preparations for the FIFA Club World Cup in December and the FIFA World Cup in 2022."
"After successfully hosting the IAAF World Athletics Championships, Khalifa International Stadium is currently being prepared to host the Arabian Gulf Cup and welcome thousands of passionate football fans from Qatar and the wider region," he added.
The Arabian Gulf Cup was conceptualized during the 1968 Olympics, with the first edition taking place in 1970. Kuwait became the first country to win the title after defeating Bahrain. Qatar has hosted the tournament on three previous occasions: 1976, 1992 and 2004 and won the tournament on three occasions: 1992, 2004 and 2014.
