New Format for 2020 Asian Cup
Following a decision of the ATTU Executive Board Meeting held in Yogyakarta in September 2019, the 2020 Asian Cup will take on a slightly different format. To raise the level of attention and play, it was decided to include the current World Champion to the list of invitees. Also, the competition will be played in a single stage knock-out system instead of the previous adopted two-stage round-robin group and knock-out system. The reason of the change is to make the Asian Cup more exciting and attractive to the fans. ATTU Executive Board agreed to review this system after 2020 and decide if the system will be followed in the future.
