CAIRO, Nov 18: Kuwait football team is set to embark on its first match in the Arab School Sports Championship against the Egyptian team at the Police Union Stadium in Abbasiya at 9:30 pm.

Responding to a proposal by Dr. Ahmed Al-Hamdan, Secretary-General of the School Union, the Football Technical Committee, led by Dr. Jamal Ali, approved a modification to the match duration. The proposal extended the playing time from 50 to 80 minutes, divided into two halves.
