The AFF also confirmed that the tournament will take place from November 23 to December 31 as scheduled.

Earlier, the Vietnam Football Federation informed that AFF Cup 2020 would not be postponed despite pressure from the AFF’s member federations who claimed that football teams did not have enough time to prepare for the tournament.

AFF Cup 2020 taking place as planned will force regional football federations to exert efforts to bring their national championships back soon.

Vietnam’s V-League will open on June 5 while there is no official information about the return of the Thai-League (Thailand), M-League (Malaysia), S-League (Singapore) or any others.
