AFC Grassroots Review 2023 now available!

The AFC Grassroots Review 2023 is now available on, recapping the various initiatives of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) and its Member Associations (MAs) that have significantly contributed to expanding the influence of the beautiful game among thousands of youngsters across Asia.

A major highlight of the publication is the Big Interview with Japan’s Masakatsu Setowaki, who was recognised as the Best Grassroots Leader at the AFC Special Grassroots Awards last year. The interview provides a deep dive into Setowaki’s inspiring journey of establishing multiple football clubs and competitions for students with disabilities in the Shizuoka Prefecture of Japan.

Meanwhile, in the section of Samples of Good Practice By MAs, the AFC Grassroots Review 2023 outlines the remarkable endeavours of the AFC’s MAs to ensure that football remains accessible to all members of society, regardless of their status or abilities, spanning categories such as Player Programmes, Grassroots Competitions, and Women’s Projects.

Additionally, it also showcases the indomitable spirit of the Confederation’s MAs who were recognised at the AFC Annual Awards Doha 2022 for their tireless efforts to grow grassroots football.

At the same time, the publication also recounts the key discussions and decisions that took place at events such as the AFC Grassroots Conference 2023 which made its comeback for the first time since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Finally, it also provides readers with a comprehensive overview of the AFC Grassroots Charter which currently endorses 41 MAs.
