Late last year, the AFF announced that the AFF Suzuki Cup 2020 will be held from December 5, 2021 to January 1, 2022, following the postponement of the tournament due to the pandemic. The AFF is continuing to work closely with the various Member Associations and partners to provide further updates on the 2021 tournament as soon as they are available.
The AFF Suzuki Cup is a biennial football competition organised by the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF), accredited by FIFA, and contested by the national ‘A’ teams of Southeast Asia. In view of the coronavirus situation, the AFF Suzuki Cup 2020 has been postponed until December 2021.
