Due to the covid-19 pandemic, the AFC Futsal Championship was postponed and the host was changed. In late December, a source told us that the competition which was scheduled to take place in Kuwait between March 23 and April 3, 2021 might be cancelled.
Some countries and especially Kuwait argued that this decision was unfair especially in the case of the following scenario: the idea is that the AFC will select 5 countries to represent Asia in the FIFA Futsal World Cup Lithuania 2021™ , 12 September – 3 October.
According to our sources, the AFC might decide to postpone again the competition, this time in summer! The Asian countries will therefore be able to have a decent preparation for the World Cup.
