The group draw of the AFF Cup 2022, the most advanced competition in the ASEAN region, was held on 30 August in Bangkok, Thailand, and the Myanmar team is placed into Group B.
The competition will be divided into two groups of five teams.
Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, and the qualifying team (Timor-Leste or Brunei) are placed in Group A while Myanmar, Viet Nam, Malaysia, and Singapore are included in Group B.
The ASEAN Football Confederation has allowed nine of the highest-ranked Southeast Asian teams to compete directly in the tourney, while the two lowest-ranked teams, Timor-Leste and Brunei, will play in the qualifiers and only the winner will qualify for the finals.
According to the announcement of the ASEAN Football Federation, the qualifiers will be held in November, and the tourney will run from 20 December 2022 to 16 January 2023.
The tourney will be held with a home and away system and the semi-finals and finals will be played in a two-round format – the home and away play.
As the Myanmar team is in the same group as Viet Nam, Malaysia, and Singapore, they are likely to struggle to qualify for the next round.
In the last 2020 competition, the Myanmar team is the only team that was placed in the same group and is meeting the Singaporean team again. — Ko Nyi Lay/GNLM
