ACL resumes in September

The AFC Champions League will resume in two regional hubs in September and October with a single match deciding the title in early December, the Asian Football Confederation said yesterday. The continent’s elite club competition, which was suspended in early March because of the novel coronavirus outbreak, will resume first in West Asia on September 14 and in East Asia on October 16 at centralized venues as yet to be confirmed. The teams will play among themselves on East-West lines throughout the tournament until the final between the best team from each region in the western hub on December 5. Four matches involving teams from the United Arab Emirates, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Uzbekistan, Iraq will get the western zone back under way, while Australia’s Perth Glory will play China’s Shanghai Greenland Shenhua in the opening match in the East.
