The Kuwait Football Association board has been dissolved by Dr Fuad Al Falah, chairman of the Public Authority for Sports and Youth Affairs, and replaced with a four-man interim committee led by Jawad Maqseed and Abdulhamid Mohamed as general secretary, Wael Sulaiman Treasurer and Ayad Salem. An ordinary session of the KFA's general assembly will be held within 30 days to elect a new board." According to AFCMedia, "this move by the Kuwaiti authorities comes after a run of bad results for the Kuwait national team as they failed to qualify for the FIFA World Cup last year and then the AFC Asian Cup 2007 Finals." Kuwait was bumped out of the Asian Cup by Asian Football Confederation newcomers, Australia.
