To celebrate the Bahrain National Team's historic victory in the 24th Gulf Football Cup

His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa has declared Monday December 9th 2019 as a public holiday where Ministries, government departments and public establishments will remain closed, marking the historic achievement of Bahrain National Team, which won the 24th Gulf Football Cup.

Bahrain beat Saudi Arabia 1-0 to lift their first-ever regional title at the Arabian Gulf Cup in Qatar.

Bahrain, who last reached the final in 2004, were finally able to claim the cup after four previous final attempts. 

Along with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain were late entrants into the draw, after they reversed their decision to boycott the tournament over a two-year-old diplomatic dispute with the hosts, Qatar.
