Road to Qatar

The Asian World Cup Final Round Group B qualifier between China and Japan on September 7 will be held in Doha, Qatar.

The decision of a neutral venue was made due to the challenges faced by the Chinese Football Association (CFA) in organising its home matches in light of the travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The AFC is now working in close partnership with the CFA, Japan Football Association as well as the Qatar Football Association to ensure the safe passage and wellbeing of all stakeholders.

The venues for the remaining AFC Asian Qualifiers – Road to Qatar Final Round matches not yet announced will be communicated in due course.
