AFC Awards Ceremony 2021 cancelled amid pandemic surge

With close supervision of the Qatar Football Association (QFA), the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Executive Committee, has recently set a decision to cancel the AFC Annual Awards 2021 to be held in Doha, Qatar.
“With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to severely impact the lives and livelihoods across the globe and in Asia, the AFC and QFA acknowledged that staging such an occasion would be inappropriate particularly during a time in which millions of lives have been lost including those who have dedicated their lives to the game in Asia and beyond,” the Asian Football Confederation officials said.
“For the second successive year, the AFC Executive Committee agreed to cancel the event which was scheduled for November 2021 and decided that the QFA will remain as the host of the 2022 edition of the AFC Annual Awards, which will now be moved to January 2023,” the AFC officials stated.
The AFC Annual Awards are awards given by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) to the most outstanding performers of the Asian football season. The awards are presented at the end of each year at a special gala. — GNLM
