“Passion for football goes beyond the field of play and match days. It is vital that the AFC continues to strengthen its offerings off-the-pitch to meet the demands of this generation of fans.

It will further support our ambition as outlined in the AFC’s Vision and Mission to confirm football as the number one sport on the Continent.”
