AFC qualifiers between Malaysia and DPR Korea to be played in Thailand

The 2019 Asian Cup qualifiers between DPR Korea and Malaysia will take place in Thailand on November 10 and 13, the Asian Football Federation (AFC) announced on Tuesday.

“We are extremely grateful for the continued support by the Football Association of Thailand (FAT) in agreeing to play host for these two matches,” AFC general secretary Dato’ Windsor John said.

“The FA of Thailand has ensured that the AFC has been able to maintain the sporting integrity of the AFC Asian Cup qualifying.”

The first match on November 10 will be designated as the DPR Korea home match, with the second match three days later deemed to be the Malaysia home fixture.
