KUWAIT, Feb 1 (KUNA) -- The Kuwait Football Association (KFA) chief and board members tendered their resignations on Thursday during a visit by Asian and international officials aimed at forming a "settlement committee" in response to a KFA request.
The AFC and FIFA formed the committee after KFA requested to "shield its legality," Sheikh Ahmad Al-Yousef Al-Sabah, the KFA president told KUNA.
The move was made after local sports clubs met to exchange viewpoints, he added.
The committee includes Meshal Al-Rabea as president, and Ali Merwi, Musaed Ajeel, Marzouq Al-Ajmi and Khalid Al-Jarallah as members.
The newly-formed taskforce will assume its duties in amending football laws in the country and preparing for new board elections as of today, he said. (end) fr.mys
