The Asian Football Confederation (AFC), after discussions with the Kuwait Football Association and all relevant parties, has decided to further postpone the 2020 AFC Futsal Championship – Kuwait and it will now be held in 2021.
The decision was confirmed after taking careful consideration of the safety and well-being of all Participating Teams and stakeholders and in response to the recent spike of COVID-19 cases in Kuwait.
The new dates for the Competition and other related matters and information will be communicated in due course.
Additionally, the AFC also notes the Chinese Football Association’s (CFA) decision to withdraw from hosting the 2022 AFC U-23 Asian Cup due to scheduling conflicts, stadium completion timelines ahead of other international events and challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The AFC will now reopen the invitation to host the final Competitions of the 2022 and 2024 editions of the AFC U-23 Asian Cup.
