The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) said on Friday that the eastern part of the Asian Champions League – such as the recently completed Western Division – would be played in Qatar following the signing of an agreement between Qatar and the Qatar Football Association.
The AFC said the Champions League East would play between November 18 and December 13. It starts again from the group stage and continues until the quarter-final and semi-final rounds 16. The venue for the final, which was played on December 19, has not been confirmed.
Last weekend, Persepolis of Iran defeated Al-Nazar of Saudi Arabia in Doha to qualify as the Western delegate to the final.
Matches in the Asian Champions League were suspended in early March due to the coronavirus epidemic.
The teams from the Western Division were subjected to tests and biosafety for hotels and transport while in Qatar and a similar plan was drawn up for the Eastern Group.
AFC General Dato said, “Everything is possible, from incoming teams to efficient immigration procedures, rigorous health checks, hotels with life-saving measures, state-of-the-art training facilities and stadiums.” Said Windsor John.
