Singapore to kick off AFC U23 Asian Cup 2022 Qualifiers on 25 October
SINGAPORE, 18 AUGUST 2021 – Singapore will kick off its Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Under-23 Asian Cup 2022 Qualifiers Group H campaign against Timor-Leste on 25 October 2021.
From 25 October to 31 October, Singapore will host defending champions Korea Republic, Timor-Leste and the Philippines for the group stage. All of the matches will be held at the Jalan Besar Stadium and all three matches involving Singapore will kick off at 8pm.
In consideration of the COVID-19 situation and AFC protocols, the tournament period has been extended to provide additional rest between matchdays. Visiting teams are also expected to arrive at least four days prior to the first matchday.
A total of 11 groups from both the West and East Zone will contest the qualifiers, with the group winners and four best second-placed teams set to advance to the final stage. The AFC U23 Asian Cup 2022, the fifth edition of the tournament, will be held in Uzbekistan in June 2022.
Hosts Uzbekistan have already received direct qualification into the Finals but will also participate in the qualifiers. Their match results will not be taken into account when calculating the group ranking and best-positioned teams among all groups.
