The 2020 ASEAN Suzuki Cup, organized by the ASEAN Football Federation, will kick off on 5 December (today) and Myanmar will play the opening match against host Singapore at 7 pm Myanmar Standard Time.
Myanmar is falling in Group A with host Singapore, the Philippines, Timor Leste, and Thailand while ASEAN giant Viet Nam is placed in Group B with Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia and Laos.
Group matches will be played twice a day, with Group A matches against Myanmar taking place at the National Stadium and Group B matches at Bishan Stadium. The group matches will be held from 5 to 19 December, and as Team Myanmar is in the tough group, every game is important and they need to advance to the next round.

Next, the two teams met in an invitational competition in June 2019.
