Asian Cup full schedule, today’s fixtures and every game’s start time


The top nations in Asia will be vying to triumph in the 18th edition of the Asian Cup.

Typically quadrennial, the tournament was delayed from 2023 due to high summer temperatures in Qatar and the host nation’s participation in last year’s Concacaf Gold Cup.

The Middle Eastern country replaced China as hosts and will be hoping to defend the crown they won for the first time in the UAE in 2019. Japan and South Korea will also be among the favourites, while Tajikistan make their debut.

The tournament is going on at the same time as the Africa Cup of Nations, or Afcon.
