AFC Asian Cup 2019: Full Schedule, Team Fixtures, start time, when and where to watch

New Delhi, December 31: The AFC Asian Cup 2019 will kick-off in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) from January 5 in which 24 teams from 5 sub-confederations will participate to play the finals on February 1.

It will be the first occasion when the tournament sees participation from 24 teams. It has been expanded from the 16-team format that was used from 2004 to 2015. The 24 teams have been divided into six groups of four teams. The top 16 teams will participate in the knockout stage and eight teams from there will progress to the quarter-finals.

97th-ranked Team India, who are featuring in this tournament after a gap of eight years, will begin their campaign against 118th-ranked Thailand on January 6. The Men in Blue, under the leadership of skipper Sunil Chhetri, are looking in sublime form in the run-up to the tournament.

India have been placed in Group A, alongside the hosts UAE, Thailand and Bahrain. India are expecting to use the Asian Cup tournament as an important building block to fulfil the dream of qualifying for the 2026 FIFA World Cup. There is hope for India to qualify for the next stage of the tournament but they start as the underdogs.
