The local committee officials were in Kuala Lumpur to discuss and update the AFC on the preparations and operational readiness of the tournament as the UAE gets set to welcome fans from across Asia and the rest of the world in January 2019, the AFC wrote on its official website.

Beyond ticketing, special attention was paid to highlight the exceptional efforts undertaken by the LOC, ranging from upgrades and refurbishments to all eight venues, to welcome Asia’s best national teams and fans from 24 countries – the largest-ever in the tournament’s history – from January 5 to February 1, 2019.

The LOC has significantly enhanced their fan engagement efforts and earlier this month, embarked on a campaign aimed at nurturing budding talents by offering a plethora of unique experiences to get involved in the most thrilling football tournament in Asia.

Working with schools, colleges, universities and football academies, the playmakers program while home team projects have been well-received and continue to gain strong momentum. Meanwhile, the upcoming mobile roadshow, schools program and extensive volunteer initiative will further strengthen the LOC’s efforts to excite and engage with communities across the UAE and the rest of Asia.

Iran is placed in the Central Asia sub category of the AFC. During the 14 appearances at the Asian Cup, the nation has won the title three times in 1968, 1972, and 1976. With the latest title won 43 years ago, Iran seems well placed to emerge at the top in the continental tournament next year.
