When the music changes, so does the dance

The Asia Football Confederation (AFC) headquarter or more well known as the AFC House stays at Bukit Jalil, AFC president Mohamed Bin Hammam said during the confederation 23rd Congress in Kuala Lumpur today.

Kuwait will vote in the bitterly fought election to select Asia's representative on the FIFA executive committee after Asian Football Confederation boss Mohamed Bin Hammam withdrew his objection to its inclusion.

Bin Hammam's about face on Kuwait's involvement in the election Friday came after the Court of Arbitration for Sport late Thursday gave authority to the other 45 Asian football nations to decide its voting rights.

Bin Hammam, who is standing in the election, told the ongoing AFC Congress he recommended they rule that Kuwait be allowed to vote.

The Qatari businessman also reversed his earlier standpoint that the AFC headquarters be shifted from Malaysia to Qatar.
