The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) has extended its deadline to receive bids for staging the 2023 Asian Cup following China’s decision to relinquish its hosting rights, the governing body said on Tuesday.

China was set to host the 24-team tournament in June and July next year but the country’s strict COVID-19 policy resulted in the event being moved.
