The AFF U23 Championship is an international football competition organised by the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) for the national under-23 teams of the member nations in the region.
The competition has been held previously, but was interrupted for the past two years due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. At the AFF U22 Championship 2019, Vietnam clinched bronze.
The 2022 tournament in Cambodia will serve as a warm-up event for regional teams in the build-up to the 31st Southeast Asian (SEA) Games, slated for next May in Vietnam.
“The championship will be the perfect place to introduce nearby stars for regional football, while providing them with opportunities to develop their talent,” said AFF President Khiev Sameth.
All matches are set to take place at Morodok Techno Stadium and Prince Stadium. Details on the participating team and match schedules will be confirmed in due course.
On November 23, the AFF announced that it has appointed its long-term partner SPORTFIVE as its exclusive commercial representative for the AFF U23 Championship 2022.
As part of the appointment, global sports marketing agency SPORTFIVE will oversee all commercial and media rights for the upcoming tournament, including sponsorship engagements and brand partnerships.
