The ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) is planning to host the ASEAN Suzuki Cup next year in two different ways, with the Myanmar national team competing.
The SUZUKI tourney has previously been scheduled to hold in the end of this year but has been postponed again to 2021 due to the pandemic. The competition will be held from April 11 to May 8 2021. The tourney has been re-approved by the ASEAN Football Federation Congress on 24 November and will be held in two modes to prevent the event from being postponed.
The AFF has set a priority for the 2018 version of the tourney but has set a second priority for all matches in one or both countries if it is difficult for the participating teams to travel.
The 2018 version of the tourney will no longer feature group matches but will feature four group matches, two home games and two away matches. The semi-finals and finals will be played at home and abroad. It will be held in a long-distance double loop system.
The tournament has been held 12 times, and the Thai team is the most successful team by winning five times. After the Thai team, the Singapore team won four times, Viet Nam team twice and the Malaysia team once. Myanmar team has reached the semi-finals twice.—Shine Htet Zaw (Translated by Kyaw Zin Lin)
