Accrodig to the FIFA, "as a result of this decision, no team from Kuwait of any sort (including clubs) can have any international sporting contact (artice 14 paragraph three of the FIFA Statutes), and neither the KFA nor any of its members or officials can benefit from any development programme, course or training from FIFA or the AFC."
