AFC readies for Extraordinary Congress to clear path for new club competition eco-system

October 13 – The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) will confirm a raft of new appointments at its Extraordinary Congress which will be held virtually next Wednesday. The AFC held its annual congress in Manama in February.

Congress will also be asked to approve the proposed reforms and prize money around the AFC’s new three-tier club competition structure.

Judicial bodies for the 2023 to 2027 term will be elected to positions including the Chairpersons, Deputy Chairpersons and Members of the AFC Disciplinary and Ethics Committee, the AFC Appeal Committee and the AFC Entry Control Body.

Member associations will also vote on approval of the Audited Financial Statements and Auditors’ Report for the year 2022 as well as the Budget for the financial years 2023 and 2024.

These budgets propose a significant increase in investment across the AFC’s competitions and burgeoning development, education, technical and refereeing programmes as well as tailormade initiatives for its MAs and Regional Associations (RAs).

At the core of the decision making congress will be enabling the progression of the new three-tier club competitions from the 2024/25 season – the AFC Champions League Elite, the AFC Champions League 2 and the AFC Challenge League.
