Rescheduled AFF Suzuki Cup to be held in April 2021
SINGAPORE, 25 SEPTEMBER 2020 – The ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) announced earlier today that the AFF Suzuki Cup 2020 will be rescheduled to run from 11 April to 8 May in 2021.
The 13th edition of Southeast Asia’s premier international tournament was slated to be held in November and December this year, but the AFF announced in July that it would be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a press statement, the AFF noted that their latest decision was “taken with a firm intention to stage the Championship in its full format – played on a home and away basis across the qualifying nations in South East Asia – provided that the conditions relating to Covid-19 allow.”
The statement continued: “In consultation with the region’s Football Federations and other relevant authorities, the AFF Suzuki Cup Task Force Committee has determined that the above dates work best to accommodate the domestic football schedules, and will continue to monitor the situation closely to ensure the safety and well-being of all players, coaches, partners, fans and the public.”
The AFF will provide further updates on the details of the tournament as soon as available.
