Budget Deficit Scuppers Gulf Cup Plans

By John Lee.

Kuwait will host the 23rd soccer Gulf Cup in early 2016, after Iraq declined to host the tournament due to a deficit in the State budget.

According to Arab News, Iraq will instead bid to host the 24th edition of the Cup.

Iraq had been due to host the event in Basra.
