AIFF to place a bid for AFC Asian Cup of 2023
The All India Football Federation (AIFF) have decided to launch a bid to bring the 2023 AFC Asian Cup to India to embark another history.
According to sources, AIFF has decided to table a bid to host the AFC Asian Cup 2023 after having a meeting with the AIFF Executive Committee in Delhi on Saturday, the decision was finalized.
Already hosting the ongoing FIFA U17 World Cup which kicked off on 6th October, this will be another success for the Indian FA if they are able to host the continental competition at home.
Infrastructure of Football in India changed quite a lot over the years, things are improving drastically. FIFA also approved India’s high level facilities and now they have a good chance of winning the bid for the 2023 Asian Cup, though India may face tough competition from fellow neighbouring countries China and South Korea who have also expressed their interest to host the Asian Cup.
The next Asian Cup is set to be held in UAE and the Indian National Football Team are on the verge of qualifying for that. They won’t have to play Qualifiers next time if India wins the bid for 2023 edition of the AFC Asian Cup.
Noteably India already have decided to bid for the 2019 FIFA U20 World Cup.
