KUALA LUMPUR, March 25 -- The Asean Football Federation (AFF) has rescheduled a few tournaments for the next four months following the global COVID-19 pandemic.
AFF president Major General Khiev Sameth said in a statement today that four tournaments would be postponed to later dates this year.
They are the AFF Women's Championship in the Philippines (scheduled in May); AFF Under-18 Women’s Championship (June); AFF Under-16 Boys’ Championship (July); and AFF Under-19 Boys’ Championship (August).
Sameth also announced that the inaugural Asean Club Championships (ACC), due to be launched this year, has been rescheduled to 2021 due to the tight schedule in the domestic league in a few Asean countries and also the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) competitions.
“As the situation is constantly evolving, we will keep a close watch and will not hesitate to make more changes to our schedule if necessary. AFF will always prioritise the well-being of our football family and communities in every decision we make,” he said.
