The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) delegation inspected the Qatari stadiums that will host the AFC Champions League competitions for East Asian clubs, which begins Wednesday until Dec. 13. The participating teams will compete to qualify for the AFC Champions League Final against the West Asian champion Persepolis FC of Iran in Doha on Dec. 19.
The AFC delegation's visit to the stadiums came in accordance with its main organizational tasks and held several meetings with officials of the Local Organizing Committee (LOC), as well as visited hotels designated for teams, AFC officials and championship referees.
The AFC delegation praised the final preparations made and the great readiness of tournament stadiums, namely: Khalifa International Stadium, Education City Stadium and Al Janoub Stadium, which are the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 stadiums, as well as the Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium at Al Sadd Sports Club.
The AFC delegation appreciated the great efforts made by the LOC, which spared no effort in providing all the special requirements in East Asian club competitions in accordance with the highest international standards, praising at the same time the health procedures and the strict medical protocol adopted by the committee and the relevant authorities in the State of Qatar.
The delegation affirmed that the readiness and expected success is not strange for Qatar, especially as the competitions come under difficult circumstances represented by COVID-19, underlining Qatar's successful hosting of events, the last of which was the AFC Champions League competitions for West Asian clubs.
The AFC delegation has been in Doha for several days to inspect all arrangements related to the tournament by communicating with the LOC and the working committees under its umbrella, and to learn about all the procedures that contribute to the success of the competition.
