Vision & Mission

Monday, August 14, 2017


The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) has signalled its intent to become the world’s leading football confederation with the launch of its Vision and Mission. The new vision will see the AFC focus on the success of Asian teams on the world’s biggest stages and strengthen the level of fan engagement to ensure football is the number one sport throughout the continent.

In line with efforts to fully realise this vision, the AFC has set out its mission, centred around seven key pillars: to provide dedicated services for Member Associations to realise their full potential, to enable the success of Asian teams at the pinnacle of world football, to raise the standard of Asian competitions, to produce commercially attractive content for stakeholders and increase fan engagement, to implement good governance and professional administrative standards, to ensure the utmost integrity at all levels and to leverage on football as a force for social good.

The AFC has also launched a new Vision and Mission logo tagline – One Asia, One Goal – signifying the core values of unity, professionalism and leadership. The AFC Vision and Mission was first initiated following recommendations of the AFC Governance Reform Task Force and concluded after a comprehensive series of engagements with various key partners and stakeholders.
