KUALA LUMPUR (30 June 2022) – The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) have extended the deadline to receive Expressions of Interest (EoI) from the AFC Member Associations (MAs) to host the AFC Asian Cup 2023™ from the original date of 30 June 2022 to 15 July 2022.
The AFC had issued an EOI invitation to the AFC MAs to host the AFC Asian Cup 2023™ on 31 May 2022.
This followed China PR’s decision to withdraw as hosts of the AFC Asian Cup 2023™ and the consequent mandate provided to the AFC Administration by the 32nd AFC Congress 2022 to define the terms and requirements of an expedited bidding process to find a replacement host for the competition.
Following the conclusion of the bidding process, the AFC Administration will submit a report with its recommendations to the AFC Executive Committee, which will then select the new host of the AFC Asian Cup 2023™. – www.the-afc.com
