The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) recently announced a postponement of the AFC Futsal Asian Cup, which is scheduled to hold in Kuwait this year and it has been moved to 2021, according to the statement with the AFC.
The new dates for the tourney and further information will be announced later, AFC officials said.
The 16th edition Futsal Asian Cup, originally scheduled to play between 26 February and 8 March 2020, had been moved to 5–16 August 2020.
But recently, tourney’s organizers further postponed the tourney next year for pandemic safety.
Like the previous year’s version, the tournament will act as the AFC qualifiers for the World Cup. The top five teams will qualify to the 2021 FIFA Futsal World Cup.
Iran Team is currently the defending champions of the tourney.
Similarly, the AFC reached the decision to withdraw AFC U23 Asian Cup 2022 due to the challenges of the pandemic.
The AFC will now reopen the invitation to host the final Competitions of the 2022 and 2024 editions of the AFC U23 Asian Cup, according to the football authorities. —Lynn Thit (Tgi)
