    I'm intrested in knowing more about the way the Asian Football Confedration is being ran.

    Their main site shows of the Offecial sponsers (Fly Emirates,and soccerex logos help clear a lot of things ;) , and there are Offecial supporters ?

    How decesions are made about tournamnets locations, dates, and setup? Are there commities? who is on those commities?

    The only ppl I seem to hear of in AFC are peter flipan, and their *new* chife The Qatari Bin Hammam.

    For the guys that read the Asian Football mag. dose it show the structure of the AFC and its activities?

    You are the only guys I can ask, since the afc site dose not reply to e-mails I send them.

    It's actually a fairly simple structure based on what some folks call the "Golden Rule."

    Those who have the gold make the rules.

    Seems no one knows for sure how the AFC is beeing run, I wanted names, and direct relationship graphs that would lead us to understand some of AFCs wierd decisions.
