Major sporting events have an ability to create enthusiasm among audiences, removing cultural or political barriers.
In a region marked by geopolitical tensions, the opening ceremony of the 23rd Arabian Gulf Cup comes just as Kuwait returns to the international scene.
To capitalise on this moment of international unity and to encourage closer collaboration between states and greater understanding between peoples, the event is being moved from Doha to Kuwait just 12 days before the ceremony.
The performance of 450 artists showcasing the richness of a cosmopolitan culture truly embodies the theme of the “Unity Show”. With unique pyrotechnic displays, this ceremony created a moment of international unity, bringing together all the populations of the Persian Gulf.
