FORWARD FOR ASIA

OUR VISION FOR THE AFC ASIAN CUP 2027

Football in Asia is on the rise! With anticipation building towards the 2023 Asian Cup, now is the time for all of Asian football to benefit from the positive momentum being created.

By bringing the AFC Asian Cup 2027 to Saudi Arabia for the first-time ever, is the opportunity to ensure that this momentum is not only carried forward but that it is renewed and expanded to include each and every football association across Asia. An AFC Asian Cup 2027 in Saudi Arabia will be much more than a football tournament; it will be the next step forward for Asian football, creating a strong legacy for all.

As we in Saudi Arabia undertake our own transformation through our national Vision 2030, we are ready to use our long-standing passion for football as a catalyst for the continued growth of football across Asia – enabling all football associations to experience, exchange and expand like never before!

A NEW EXPERIENCE

The AFC Asian Cup 2027 in Saudi Arabia will benefit from our renewed focus on innovation and state-of-the-art technology blended with our long history of premium hospitality in an exciting and transforming country.

We want to stage a next generation football tournament, which will set standards for future football AFC tournaments delivering a football experience like never before for millions of spectators from all over Asia.

A NEW EXCHANGE

An AFC Asian Cup 2027 in Saudi Arabia will be the opportunity for all football associations in Asia to benefit from our proud history of footballing success and commitment to football development at the highest level.

We want to use the tournament to exchange with and involve every AFC Member Association both in the tournament’s organisation and our proven development programmes, providing every corner of Asia with the tools they need to grow the game.

A NEW EXPANSION

Bringing the AFC Asian Cup to Saudi Arabia for the first-time ever in 2027, Asian football has the unique opportunity to enter a new, prosperous market in an established and stable economy.

We will use our strong network to build long-lasting relationships that will benefit all of Asian football, bringing new resources and opportunities to further expand and move Asian football forward.
