LIVE AFF Suzuki Cup 2021

The 2020 AFF Championship (officially AFF Suzuki Cup 2020[1] for sponsorship reasons) will be the 13th edition of the AFF Championship, the football championship of nations affiliated to the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF), and the 7th under the name AFF Suzuki Cup.

The final tournament was originally scheduled to run from 23 November to 31 December 2020. However the tournament was postponed and rescheduled at least twice due to the COVID-19 pandemic; the tournament was first rescheduled to run from 11 April to 8 May 2021 and the schedule later pushed backed further to 5 December 2021 – 1 January 2022.

The AFF Suzuki Cup 2020 will be hosted in a centralized venue due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic in Southeast Asia. On 28 September 2021, it was announced that Singapore would host the tournament. Cambodia, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam also expressed interest in hosting the tournament.

In the group stage of the competition proper, ten teams will be drawn in two groups of five with single round-robin format. The top two teams of each group advance to the semi-finals.

The organizers preferred to hold the tournament under its original format, which featured home-and-away games.

Up to five substitutions may be allowed as per recommendation of FIFA.

Nine teams automatically qualified to the AFF Championship final tournament; they were separated into their respective pots based on their performance of the last two editions. Brunei and Timor Leste who were the two lowest-performing teams were supposed to play a match where the winner will secure a spot to the final tournament but Brunei withdrew citing the COVID-19 pandemic. Australia, a member since 2013, did not enter the tournament.

Group A = Thailand, Myanmar, Fhilipina, Singapura, Timor Leste

Group B = Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos
