    I don't know. It's obviously bad, but AFC work in really weird circles.

    lol at the guy at the end that's shooting the ball in the net.

    That's what I call spontaneous pitch invasion. Usually these things take a few mins, but that was quick. Pre planned hooliganism?

    Tajikistan allowed to transfer to the AFC Cup 2013

    champion of Tajikistan - Ravshan will fight in the AFC Cup in 2013 with the group stage, and the Republic Cup winner - Regar TadAZ - with play-off round.

    With the transition to the AFC Сup teams from Tajikistan will no longer participate in the AFC President's Cup.

    Atleast there is some positive news with lower tier nations. Good to see Tajikistan clubs dominating the Presidents Cup finally got there 'promotion'

    I've been waiting for news like this for years now. Hopefully their will be a big push to unify the Presdients Cup and AFC Cup in the next few years. The AFC Presidents Cup do have strong representation from some nations that need pushing to the next level and of course some poor nations like Bhutan/Mongolia for example, but I can't see why they couldn't play playoffs like the ACL has.

    Of course, 2013 edition would make way for Northern Mariana Islands to compete in a 12 team competition.

    We just need these nations now to be represented on the continental stage: Brunei, Timor-Leste, Philippines, Guam, Laos, Macau, North Korea and Afghanistan. And I think for some of these nations, it won't be long.

    I think the Philippines could well after 1-2 years to participate in the President's Cup.
    North Korea does not believe that will be used to participate in the continental. Theirs national championship so shrouded in mystery at all. A team will travel to the tournament so players will scatter to someone as do players from Eritrea.
    Into teams of Laos too, would have been interesting to see. I think in the nearest 5 years, they will also participate.

    I agree druryfire- This is the sort of news required to know that the AFC is also focusing on the smaller nations in order to push them for higher football. Of the clubs in the AFC Presidents Cup, I would say easily clubs from Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Philippines and North Korea could easily give a good test to AFC Cup teams

    And the badside, AFC have not announced it yet. I always get nervous when these reports come out from everyone but AFC.

    You'd think the AFC would want to promote their football, but they try their best not to. It's like they are shy of these nations that don't fit into the top tier.

    With recent announcements from the AFC with the Challenge Cup, Champions League etc, my faith in the AFC has gone to be honest.
    With some ridiculous rules, its like 'football' is last on their priority
