AFF Futsal Cup tourney scheduled to be held with six teams


The ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) plans to host the AFF Futsal Cup Championship in September with six teams, according to the ASEAN football authorities.
The football federation is planning to resume the Futsal Club Championship for the first time in more than a year and a half since the Covid-19 outbreak.
The AFF Futsal Cup will be held from 12 to 18 September in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand, with clubs from Southeast Asia.
The ASEAN Football Federation has announced plans to host the AFF Futsal Cup earlier this month.
At present, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesian and Cambodian clubs have been allowed to compete in the tourney, but it is not yet clear if the Myanmar club will be able to compete in the tourney, officials said.
Myanmar futsal clubs have been without training since March last year due to the pandemic and are unable to hold domestic competitions.
The ASEAN football authorities previously changed the name of the ASEAN Futsal Club Championship to the AFF Futsal Cup. The competition has been held annually since 2015, but was not held in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic and will be held again this year.
Myanmar clubs competed in this competition every year, and MIU (formerly MIC) team won bronze medals in 2016, 2018 and 2019 respectively.—Ko Nyi Lay/GNLM
