Qatar wins Asian Cup bid

Qatar has been selected as host of the next AFC Asian Cup in a new bid that opened after original hosts China relinquished its rights earlier this year due to the country’s zero-Covid policy.

Other countries that made a pitch for the second bid included South Korea and Indonesia.

The Gulf nation previously hosted the Asian Cup in 1988 and 2011.
