Nottingham Forest bought by Kuwaiti family

BY foxsports • July 11, 2012

The Al-Hasawi family from Kuwait has bought English first-division soccer team Nottingham Forest from the estate of late owner Nigel Doughty.

Doughty put the team up for sale last October before dying of a cardiac arrest at his home in February.

''It is an honor and a privilege for the Al-Hasawi family to assume control of this great club steeped in history,'' Fawaz, Abdulaziz and Omar Al-Hasawi said in a statement.

The two-time European champion finished last season 19th in the first division, which is a step below the Premier League.

The new owners will be introduced on Saturday.
