“The AFC earlier postponed all AFC Cup West Zone group stage matches on March 12 and the latest decision applies to all matches in March and April across the five AFC zones,” the association said. “In the meantime, the AFC will closely monitor the situation before deciding when to recommence the 2020 AFC Cup season.”
“The decision, which was made in conjunction with the competing clubs and their respective member associations, is a precautionary measure to ensure the safety and well-being of all participating players and teams, match officials, and spectators as well as designed to protect the integrity of the competition,” they added.
