Australia Set To Be Announced As Asian Cup 2015 Hosts

Australia are the sole bidders for the 2015 Asian Cup, with their right to host the tournament to be announced just after the new year.

The winner of the right to host the 2015 Asian Cup will be announced by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) on January 6, with Australia at present the sole bidder.

Nonetheless, Football Federation Australia (FFA) is required to adhere to the formal bidding process as designed by AFC.

The decision will be made at a special AFC Executive Committee meeting, following the AFC Congress to be held in Doha, Qatar next year.

As part of the bidding process, FFA chairman Frank Lowy and CEO Ben Buckley handed over Australia's bid book to AFC President Mohamed Bin Hammam on July 29 at AFC House in Kuala Lumpur.

Australia's bid book contained 350 pages of information about how Asia's largest sporting event would be conducted in Australia.

The story is too old to be commented.
