Qatar to host Asian Champions League final

18 October, 2020

KUALA LUMPUR AFP: Qatar will host the Asian Champions League final in December, officials said Friday, after the Gulf state successfully staged the restart of the tournament following a months-long coronavirus hiatus.

The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) said the final will take place on December 19 in Doha, where a bio-secure “bubble” has been set up to protect players and staff from infection.

AFC general secretary Windsor John said choosing a venue for the final of Asia’s top club tournament had been “complex”, particularly as this year’s showdown will be a single leg.

Usually it consists of two legs, which are played in the countries of the finalists. After being suspended in March, the tournament resumed last month in Qatar, which is also the host of the next World Cup in 2022.
