The Asian Football Confederation has postponed all qualifiers scheduled in October and November for the 2022 World Cup and the 2023 Asian Cup.

The AFC said the delay is to protect the health and safety of all participants because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The games will be rescheduled in 2021.

The 2022 World Cup is set to be played in Qatar and the Asian Cup will be held in China the following year.
