While AFF intends to stage the tournament in its full format and schedule like home and away matches at all stages, we also recognize the need to explore and be prepared for the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic in order to include possible alternative formats using centralized venues.
The health and safety of our stakeholders will continue to be our top priority when we consider the various options for the tournament. A further announcement of the event will be made in July,” the AFF president added.
Malcolm Thorpe, the event’s commercial partner, said, “We are working hard to support AFF and its member associations in order to review potential contingency measures which may be required depending on the prevailing situation in each of the member countries. We are confident that all measures will be taken to ensure the safety of all participants and fans.”
