AFC Asian Cup 2023 match schedule in Qatar

Today, Monday, the organizers revealed the schedule of matches for the 2023 AFC Asian Cup, which will be held in Qatar in early 2024, after the amendments that were made, most notably the adoption of Lusail Stadium to host the opening and final matches of the tournament.

The tournament will be held from January 12 to February 10 next year, on 9 stadiums, including 7 that hosted the 2022 World Cup matches in Qatar.

Lusail Stadium (which hosted the Qatar World Cup final) will witness the opening match, in which the host country and the defending champions, Qatar, will face their Lebanese counterpart at 7 pm Doha time, and the final will also be played in it, and the capacity of the stadium is 88,000 seats.

In addition to Lusail Stadium, six other World Cup stadiums will host the Asian Cup matches: Al-Bayt, Al-Janoub, Al-Thumama, Ahmed bin Ali, Education City, and Khalifa International Stadium, in addition to the Jassim bin Hamad and Abdullah bin Khalifa stadiums.

24 teams are participating in the Asian Cup, which has been divided into 6 groups, and the tournament will witness up to 3 matches per day during the group stage.

Thanks to the close distances between stadiums in the State of Qatar, fans will have an exceptional opportunity to attend more than one match during the day. This feature also allows fans coming from outside the country to stay in one place throughout the duration of the tournament, similar to what happened in the Qatar World Cup, which was praised by the world.
