SINGAPORE: The ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Suzuki Cup 2020 will be broadcast live for free on meWATCH, said Mediacorp on Tuesday (Nov 30).

Football fans can catch all 26 matches from Dec 5, 2021 to Jan 1, 2022 on the streaming platform, with highlights to be uploaded on the meWATCH and Mediacorp Entertainment YouTube channels.

Initially set to be held last year, the Suzuki Cup was pushed back to April this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was later rescheduled for a second time.

The biennial Southeast Asian tournament will be held at the National Stadium and Bishan Stadium.

Host country Singapore will kick off the 10-team tournament against Myanmar at the National Stadium on Dec 5.

Each team will play four fixtures in a round robin format at the group level.

Four-time winners Singapore will square off against Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand and Timor-Leste in Group A.

In Group B, reigning champions Vietnam will face Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia and Laos.

The top two teams from each group will qualify for the two-legged semi-finals, before facing off in the two-legged finals, slated for Dec 29 and Jan 1.

This will be the fifth time that Singapore is hosting the group stages of the tournament.

Unlike the 2018 tournament which was held on a home-and-away basis, this year's edition will be held in one country due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
