I don't know what there selectionprocess is, but for me, it's not bad. Look at Myanmar, Laos, Nepal for example, they will never host anything much bigger than these qualification rounds or an AFC Presidents Cup finals round, so to be given this priviledge to then hopefully build football in these countries is big for them. A few years ago these nations wouldn't even enter, now they do, and they are given some kind of responsability, be it making hotel arrangements for visiting teams, or just producing a time table of events, which at times is unheard of in such countries. Thailand could quite easily of hosted their group which contains Laos, but they do this nearly all the time to the point that even for themselves, to ge tout of the bubble and say a different way of doing it even helps them. Put it this way, everyone has to start some where, but it is maybe a pity that AFC can't get better media coverage themselves. They push and push the ACL, but they could give a bit more to youth events, if they want the game to grow then they have to do something aswell. But knowing the mentality of most Asian countries and their football, that the TV producers probably don't even know what's happening until it's happened.
