Vietnam to hunt for Futsal World Cup place in August

Vietnam will join 15 other teams in the 2020 AFC Futsal Championship, which is slated to take place between August 5 and 16 in Turkmenistan, targeting a top-five finish to secure a place in next year’s FIFA Futsal World Cup in Lithuania.

The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) recently decided on the new dates of the tournament after carefully considering the situation of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Originally scheduled between February 26 and March 8, the competition had been postponed following consultation with all the relevant stakeholders amid the complicated developments of the disease in many countries around the world.

The 16 participating teams will play in a round robin format in four groups to decide the top two teams from each group who will qualify for the knockout round.

The top five teams of the tournament will qualify as the AFC representatives for the FIFA Futsal World Cup, rescheduled to take place from September 12 to October 3, 2021.
