The ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) is planning to resume the ASEAN Club Championship in 2022, which has not been held for more than a decade.
The tournament has been scheduled for 2020 but could not be held in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
The competition was held twice, in 2003 and 2005, after which it was suspended for some time.
The federation is planning to resume the tournament as there is no regional competition for clubs in Southeast Asia.
Clubs from the Southeast Asian region will be allowed to compete in the tournament, with qualified teams which will be competing in first priority.
In some countries, two teams will be allowed to compete, and in addition to the qualified team, a runner-up team or a losing team will be allowed to compete.
Of the two previous competitions, the Customs Team competed for Myanmar in the 2005 competition, but no representing team for Myanmar in 2003 competition.
If it will be held next year, the defending champions of the 2020 Myanmar National League, Shan United FC, will be eligible to compete.—Ko Nyi Lay/GNLM
