AFC Asian Cup 2023 Live Streaming TV Channels, Fixtures and Teams

The 2023 AFC Asian Cup, the 18th edition of the quadrennial international football competition organized by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), is set to feature 24 national teams following an expansion in 2019. Qatar, the reigning champions, will defend their title in this tournament.

In a notable development on 17 October 2022, the AFC declared that Qatar would host the event, taking over from the initial hosts, China.

Owing to the intense summer heat and Qatar’s involvement in the 2023 CONCACAF Gold Cup, the tournament’s dates were rescheduled to 12 January – 10 February 2024. 

Despite the shift, the event retained its original name for consistency in sponsorship and logistical considerations.
