Bhubaneswar: The AFC Women’s Asian Cup, scheduled to be held in Bhubaneswar and Ahmedabad next year, will now be held in Mumbai and Pune.

The Mumbai Football Arena at the Andheri Sports Complex and the Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex in Balewadi, Pune have been chosen as the new venues.

“The decision was confirmed taking into careful consideration the existing challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic,” the AFC stated in a press release.

The body said it was part of “efforts to minimise the travelling time for teams and officials between the venues, whilst ensuring the optimum environment to implement the Bio Medical Bubble for the benefit of all stakeholders.”

“The 37,900-capacity D Y Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai will remain as one of the three stadiums that will stage the AFC Women’s Asian Cup India 2022 which is on schedule to take place from January 20 to February 6, 2022,” the AFC said.
