The ASEAN Football Federation held a draw-lots ceremony for the group stage of the 2022 ASEAN Futsal Championship on 21 February, with the Myanmar team in Group B.
A total of nine teams will compete in the tournament with four teams in Group B while another five in Group A.
According to the draw-lots event, group A includes the host Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia, and Brunei Darussalam while Viet Nam, Myanmar, Timor-Leste and Australia are placed in Group B.
The tournament will be held from 3 to 12 April at Huamark Indoor Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.
The ASEAN Football Federation (MFF) will no longer host the ASEAN Zone Futsal Championship to be held in Kuwait in September this year and thus the three winners from this tourney will qualify for the AFC Futsal Championship.
The ASEAN Football Federation hosted the ASEAN Futsal Championship in 2001, and the Myanmar team has been competing since 2006.
Team Myanmar won a silver medal once and bronze medals twice in the past.
The highest achievement was reaching the finals for the first time in 2016 and was coached by Myanmar coach U Htay Myint.
The Myanmar team will compete in the ASEAN Futsal Championship to be held in April. The 22-man preliminary squad has been under training since January for the 31st SEA Games in May.
The team is coached by Thai national Boonlert Charoenwong and will compete in the NSDF Futsal Invitation 2022 in Thailand in March in preparation for the upcoming two tournaments. — Ko Nyi Lay/GNLM
