The Gulf Nations Cup and Gulf Club Cup are very much just glorified friendly competitions. However, they are treated as essential International Major cups, on club and national level. As such, I feel they could be fun on FM.
What it includesThe Gulf Nations Cup
Imagine the Euros, but for countries around the Gulf Peninsula. Thats it.
Contains teams Bahrain, Qatar, Iran, Iraq, Oman, Yemen, Saudi Arabi and UAE.
The Gulf Club Cup
An unofficial "Champions League" for clubs in and around the Arabian Peninsula.
Contains 2 clubs from each Arabic Middle Eastern country, except for UAE, Yemen, Oman and Palestine, which qualify one team each.
