China to host Asian Cup

Sports | 17 May 2019

South Korea have abandoned their bid to stage football's Asian Cup in 2023, leaving China with a free run to become hosts.

The Korea Football Association said it had pulled out to focus on a joint bid with North Korea to host the Women's World Cup in the same year.

China should on June 4 then be confirmed by the Asian Football Confederation as hosts of the championship for the second time. They staged the tournament in 2004.
