KUALA LUMPUR, 13 Nov – Asian Football Confederation (AFC) has recently been informed by the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) that its affiliated club, Johor Darul Takzim (JDT), has withdrawn from the AFC Champions League 2020.
The club has indicated that they are unable to travel to Qatar to compete in the AFC Champions League 2020 (East) centralised competition which is scheduled to commence on November 18.
A statement from AFC today stated that – applying Articles 6.1 and 6.2.1 of the AFC Champions League 2020 Competition Regulations, all matches of Johor Darul Takzim are cancelled and considered null and void.
For the avoidance of doubt, all points and goals in those matches shall not be taken into consideration when determining the final rankings in the Group Stage.
As a result, only three clubs will now be participating in Group G of the AFC Champions League 2020.
Apart from JDT, other teams drawn in Group G are Guangzhou Evergrande FC (China), Vessel Kobe (Japan) and Suwon Bluewings (South Korea).
JDT was sheduled to play against Guangzhou Evergrande FC on Nov 19 (Thursday) at Khalifa International Stadium Doha, Qatar.
