After quite some time off blogging, there’s no better way to get back except with a strong subject, and this post is about the Readiness of the Jaber International Stadium in Kuwait and the Kuwait Champions Challenge Celebration that will take place, after years of structural issues and the question if it would ever be ready, Friday the 18th of December will host a Celebratory Challenge, between a select number of International players and Local Kuwaiti players!
