AFC Asian Cup 2027 host selection postponed to next year due to COVID-19

Temporibus autem quibusdam et aut officiis debitis aut rerum necessitatibus saepe eveniet ut et voluptates repudiandae sint et molestiae non recusandae itaque.

The selection of the host for the AFC Asian Cup 2027, for which India is making a bid, has been postponed to 2022 from November this year due to the “prevailing challenges” caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Executive Committee has decided to revise the timeline of the bidding process.

“Therefore, it was agreed that the selection of the host for the AFC Asian Cup 2027 will now take place in 2022, instead of the upcoming 31st AFC Congress on November 27, 2021.”

Following an extensive and comprehensive bidding documentation submission process, four member associations — India, Iran, Qatar and Saudi Arabia — remain in contention to host the AFC’s flagship men’s tournament.
