I congratulate the Bahrain National Football Team with great pride for their historical victory in the 24th Gulf Cup Football Championship.

We have all waited for this precious moment to come for several years, and now that joy has been achieved with this glorious victory.

Our sincere congratulations to His Majesty the King, Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, for his support to the youth and sports sector and to His Highness Sheikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Chairman of the Supreme Council for Youth and Sports, who worked tirelessly to implement His Majesty’s directives in following up the development of the sporting infrastructure and supporting the energies of the youth.

It is never too late to harness all the capabilities of the youth and this is what has led to winning this coveted championship. This is a historic victory that has delighted the people of Bahrain and has spread an atmosphere of overwhelming joy all over the country.

Our congratulations also to His Excellency Sheikh Salman bin Ibrahim Al Khalifa, President of the Asian Football Confederation and the First Vice President of the International Football Association and to His Excellency Sheikh Ali bin Khalifa bin Ahmed Al Khalifa, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Bahrain Football Association, along with others who were sincere in their efforts and stood steadfastly to overcome all obstacles until this historic victory was achieved, and which will remain etched in memory.

Congratulations to the Kingdom of Bahrain and its leadership and the loyal Bahraini people who stood behind the team since the start of the tournament and a thousand greetings and thanks to the loyal team stars who did not disappoint. May they win more regional and global championships.
