The AFF Championship (ASEAN Football Championship) is a biennial international association football competition organised by the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF), contested by the national teams of Southeast Asia .

From 2008, Japanese auto-company Suzuki bought the naming rights for the competition, and the competition has therefore been named the AFF Suzuki Cup for sponsorship reasons.
