Thailand will host the three groups of the 2021 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League: Group F, Group G and Group J in the East region of the 2021 AFC Champions League, according to a statement released by the AFC.
The decision was made by the AFC with regards to the AFC tournaments, which will be launched in June 2021.
Ahead of the upcoming tourney, AFC General Secretary Dato’ Windsor John said,“On behalf of the Asian football family, I would like to thank all our Member Associations for their interest in hosting our club competitions and commitment towards ensuring we continue to place the safety and wellbeing of our players, teams, and officials at the forefront of all our priorities.”
“The AFC are most grateful for the support of the AFC Competitions Committee and our commercial partners, and we will continue to safeguard the interests of all stakeholders as we strive to ensure a safe and successful 2021 club football season,” he added.
“As part of the bidding process, which was opened to all Participating Member Associations, a wide range of requirements were put in place to ensure adherence to the highest health and safety protocols and standards. These include minimum travel and quarantine restrictions for away clubs, the convenience of flight connections and the medical situation in the host country, sufficient venues to organize the matches and, most importantly, mandatory Covid-19 test to be organized for all players and officials, the costs of which will be borne by the AFC”, football authorities stated.—GNLM `
