FAS response to media query on postponement of 2020 AFF Suzuki Cup

Share

β€œIt is unfortunate that the 2020 AFF Suzuki Cup has to be postponed but in light of the current circumstances given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we fully understand and support that this decision was made in the best interests of the Asean football community. This is a time for us to put our on-pitch rivalries on hold and work together to overcome the common adversary in COVID-19. The health and safety of the players, staff as well as the fans are of the utmost priority and it is our collective responsibility to ensure that they are not compromised. Alongside the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers, the AFF Suzuki Cup was among our top priorities this year given its significance as the top football tournament in South East Asia. However with this postponement, it will allow us more time to prepare for the competition and we are looking forward to putting on a good showing for our fans when the tournament commences in 2021.”
