Two Myanmar clubs allowed to compete in next year’s AFC Cup


Two Myanmar football clubs will be allowed to compete in next year’s AFC Cup held by the Asian Football Confederation.
Starting next year, Myanmar clubs will no longer be allowed to compete in the Asian Champions League qualifiers, and will only be allowed to compete in the AFC Cup.
The team that is the champion of the championship will be allowed to compete directly in the group stage, while the runner-up team of the championship or the losing team will play in the qualifying play-off stage.
This year, as Myanmar’s professional league, the Myanmar National League, is being held again, the champion team and the runner-up team will be allowed to compete in the international tourney.
Myanmar clubs withdrew from the AFC Cup in 2021 and 2022 without competing, and the 2020 tournament was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Myanmar clubs have been allowed to compete in the AFC Cup since 2012. Previously, two teams from the group stage were allowed to compete, but since 2017, one team from the group stage, and the other team from the qualifying play-off stage is allowed to compete. — Ko Nyi Lay/GNLM
