ASEAN zonal AFC Cup moved to a week later

The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) has recently decided to reset the fixtures for the AFC Cup ASEAN Zone Group Stage matches, originally scheduled to hold from 22 to 28 June, to a week later.
“The matches in Group H will now be played from 29 June to 5 July 2021, with Group I matches currently scheduled for 30 June to 6 July 2021.
The decision to reschedule the ASEAN Zone was taken after confirming the new match schedule for the AFC Champions League (East) Playoff matches. They are now planned for 22 June 2021 and, depending on the outcome of the Preliminary Stage matches, may include the participation of teams from the ASEAN Zone,” officials said.
‘‘All other conditions related to the 2021 AFC Cup (ASEAN Zone) remain the same with Groups H, and I scheduled to take place in Singapore while the venue for the remaining Group G will be decided at a later date,” officials added.
ASEAN Zone consists of the football teams from 12 associations of the ASEAN Football Federation.
There are three groups in the group stage in the ASEAN Zonal competition, including nine direct slots, with the three remaining slots filled through qualifying playoffs. — GNLM
