Asian Championships 2009 - September 5 in KL

Asia

The pinnacle of the Asian Football season is the Asian Championships, this year to held in Kuala Lumpur at the Selangor Polo Club on 5th September.

The Malaysian Warriors are hosting this prestigious tournament for only the second time in commemoration of their 10th year of existence.

Teams participating include the hosts Malaysian Warriors, current title holder Dubai Heat, powerhouses Singapore, Hong Kong and Bali, as well as regular contenders Jakarta, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos and the China Reds.

It is expected that the format will be two groups of five teams each playing each other once with the top two teams in each group playing off in cross-over semi-finals, with the two winners playing off in the Grand Final.

The Asian Championships get bigger each year and this year sees the second edition of a Junior Championship which will feature a significant number of Asian-born players. Teams from Jakarta (last year’s winner), Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore are expected to participate.

There will also be an Auskick session for the younger kids, as well as full catering and plenty of entertainment.

As always, it will be a huge day and all Malaysian footy followers are urged to get to the ground. Play starts at 10.00am

Why does the Brunei Sharks don't participate?

I don't think the Brunei Sharks are active anymore. Haven't heard any news from them in four or five years. Someone in Asia might know more.

Philippines Eagles have also gone quiet after a lot of promise when they began.

Brunei can usually put together a side at home, but not enough for an Asian Championships (which is serious stuff!) . Some of their players normally play for Malaysia in the Championships.
The Philippines concentrate on the Manila Cup which is getting bigger every year. PAFL is doing quite well, certainly not quiet, a have plenty of intra-club games.

I just had a look at the PAFL site then, they certainly have been playing a bit more than I thought!! Have they been at the past few Asian Championships?
