Hanoi (VNA) – The ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Suzuki Cup 2020 will be postponed one more time from April 2021 to December 2021 due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The information was released by permanent Vice President of the Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) Tran Quoc Tuan, who added that the AFF convened a virtual meeting on December 7 to discuss and approve the tournament schedule next year.

Accordingly, the AFF’s premier tournament may take place from December 5, 2021 to January 1, 2020.

Earlier, the tournament’s schedule was delayed to April 2021, instead of December 2020 initially.
