JORDAN MARKS 50 DAYS TO GO UNTIL WOMEN’S ASIAN CUP
Feb 14, 2018
It is just 50 days to go until Jordan hosts one of its biggest ever sporting events – the AFC Women’s Asian Cup.
The continent’s top eight sides will be in Jordan from April 7-22 for a showpiece tournament that will underline the strength of women’s football in Asia.
The tournament will feature two groups of four with hosts Jordan joining China, Philippine and Thailand in Group A, while Group B includes Japan, Australia, South Korea and Vietnam.
Top two from each group will secure their place in the World Cup that will be held in France next year.
The organising committee has launched its final promotional drive across the Kingdom and is hoping the Jordanians wil back the event, justlike they did when the FIFA Women’s U17 World Cup was held in Jordan in 2016.
Event Manager Farah Badarneh said: “We are on target for hosting another successful event and I hope that local fans will stand behind us and come to the matches.”
