The Saudi and Emirati football teams which are present in Kuwait for the Arabian Gulf Cup withdrew from press conferences ahead of their scheduled matches on Friday because a microphone bearing the logo of the Qatari beIN sports channel was among those covering.

The organizing committee later intervened and replaced the microphones with one microphone bearing the cup’s logo.

The Arabian Gulf Cup opens tomorrow in Kuwait. Saudi Arabia will play versus Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates will play versus Oman.
