With club football seasons gradually coming close to an end across the world’s leagues, it is only normal that at this time of the year, different international and Inter-continental tournaments will start coming up so football players can be allowed to accept their country’s call-up and represent their nations at these tournaments.
FIFA and Qatar have been working closely since they established a partnership that will see the country host the next FIFA World Cup which is set to start next year. However, this cup competition (the FIFA Arab Cup) will be hosted towards the end of this year.
The Tuesday-slayed draw will be made starting from 9 pm and there will be limited space for people who wish to be in attendance. This is so because of the rules and guidelines governing the practicing of social distancing as a result of the coronavirus pandemic outbreak.
At the tournament, there will be as many as 23 teams (all Arabian) who will be contesting for the title. Some of the games will also be played at some of the stadiums selected to host next year’s FIFA World Cup.
The teams that will participate in the tournament include teams from Qatar (hosts), Algeria, Bahrain, Comoros, Djibouti, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.
