The 2014 Gulf Cup of Nations will be the 22nd edition of the biennial football competition, and will be held between 13 and 26 November in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.[1]

It was scheduled to take place in Basra, Iraq but was shifted after concerns over preparations and security.[2] Iraq was also due to host the 2013 tournament, but this was moved to Bahrain instead. After being moved to Saudi Arabia, Jeddah was initially announced as the host city but was later moved to Riyadh.[3]

Draw[edit]

The draw will take place on 12 August 2014.[4]

Eight teams will be divided into two groups, Saudi Arabia (the host nation) will be in group A, UAE (the holder) in group B, while the rest of the teams will be placed in a pot based on FIFA ranking.
