The ASEAN Football Federation will resume the ASEAN Club Championship this year, with the participation of 14 football clubs from member countries, including Myanmar, despite the fact that it missed hosting the tournament for many years.
Two football clubs, each from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Viet Nam, and one club each from Singapore and the Philippines, will have the chance to take part in the final stage of the tourney.
Meanwhile, one club each from Myanmar, Brunei, Cambodia and Laos have to join the play-off, and two of the four will be allowed to take part in the final stage. In the final stage, two groups of six clubs each will play home and away matches.
As only one Myanmar football club has a chance to compete in the tourney, it is expected that the league champion club or the first-runner-up club will be allowed to join the competition.
The ASEAN Football Federation organized the tourney in 2003 and 2005 but did not continue it for many years. Albeit trying to resume the tournament in 2020, the federation postponed its arrangements due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the new plan, the federation will host the ASEAN Club Championship for the 2024-25 season from 17 July 2024 to 21 May 2025.
Finance/Customs Football Club could grasp a great chance to represent Myanmar by taking part in two previous championships. It drew out from the competition in 2003 but participated in the tourney in 2005. Unfortunately, the Myanmar club dropped out of the group matches in 2005. — Ko Nyi Lay/TTA
