AFC workshop to help clubs 'smoothly host' games

A two-day Asian Football Confederation workshop for 28 AFC Champions League clubs and 24 AFC Cup teams is underway at AFC House in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. According to AFC Media, delegates are discussing competition regulations, the commercial platform and its management, media management, event management, the AFC Administration System and finance to "help them smoothly host" home-and-away matches.

“Behind any competition of this scale, involving group and knock stages played in all corners of our vast continent, immaculate planning is essential if we want to consolidate our learnings of the past years and provide an even greater platform for our clubs, media and fans,” AFC President Mohamed Bin Hammam said. “This is our second workshop in this direction and we want to build on past experiences to take the 2007 season to greater heights.”
