China releases Asia-Cup 2023
The final round of the Asia Cup was planned in China for June 16 to July 16, 2023, but the huge kingdom of the middle will not be available as an organizer due to the tense corona situation in the country.
This was announced by the AFC on Saturday.
“The AFC recognizes the extraordinary circumstances caused by the Covid 19 pandemic and led to the fact that the host rights were abandoned,” said the association.
The AFC has not yet been able to present a new organizer.
In 2019 the tournament took place in the United Arab Emirates and found a surprising winner with World Cup host Katar.
Qatar prevailed 3-1 in the final against Japan and won the Asia Cup for the first time.
