The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) is pleased to announce that the Uzbekistan Football Association (UFA) will host the remaining centralised matches of the AFC Champions League (East) Groups H and I, which are scheduled to take place from June 25 to July 11, 2021.

The latest decision brings to a close the venue selection process for the AFC Champions League Group Stage following the confirmation of the Football Association of Thailand as the centralised host Member Association for Groups F, G and J, which will take place from June 22 to July 11, 2021.

Uzbekistan will also host the Playoff Stage match between Korea Republic’s Daegu FC and Chiangrai United of Thailand on June 23, 2021, with the winners securing their spot in Group I alongside last season’s quarter-finalist Beijing FC from China PR, reigning J.League champions Kawasaki Frontale and this season’s debutants United City FC from the Philippines.
