Saudi sole bidder to host 2027 Asian Cup after India exit

KUALA LUMPUR: Saudi Arabia on Monday turned into the sole bidder to have the 2027 Asian Cup after India pulled out its offered.

The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) said in a proclamation that the All India Football League had pulled out from the choice.

The assertion gave no justifiable excuses to India’s choice.

In October the AFC’s leader panel shortlisted India and Saudi Arabia as likely has.

“The Asian Football Confederation has been authoritatively informed by the All India Football Organization (AIFF) of their choice to pull out their bid from the AFC Asian Cup 2027 host determination process,” the local body expressed Monday without explaining.

Three-time champions Saudi Arabia will currently presumably have their most memorable AFC Asian Cup.

The AFC Congress will officially choose the host in the Bahrain capital of Manama in February one year from now.

Saudi Arabia caused quite possibly of the greatest shock in the continuous World Cup in Qatar when they beat Argentina 2-1 in their initial match. In any case, the group couldn’t propel past the primary round.

The 2023 Asian Cup will likewise be facilitated by Qatar. It was recently set to be held in China yet the nation pulled out due to Coronavirus.

The Asian Cup is arranged at regular intervals. Qatar won the competition’s last version, in 2019, which was facilitated by the Unified Bedouin Emirates.
