China PR to play next month’s Asian Qualifiers matches in Thailand


Kuala Lumpur: The Asian Football Confederation (AFC), in consultation with FIFA, has approved China PR’s request to play their upcoming FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and AFC Asian Cup China 2023 Asian Qualifiers at a neutral venue.

Due to the recent coronavirus outbreak, China PR are unable to play in the People’s Republic and instead will now play their home match against Maldives on March 26, 2020 at the Chang Arena, Buriram in Thailand.

In addition, the Guam FA has agreed that its home tie against China PR on March 31 will also be staged at the same venue.
