Iran to host Asia Junior [Archives:1998/04/Sports]

January 26 1998

Competitions instead of Yemen
Due to the long communications and approval on hosting the competitions locally, the request of the Yemeni Football Association to host the Asian Junior Competitions has been delayed.  At the same time, the Iranian Association requested to host the competition.  Therefore, the Asian Football Association has decided that Iran will organize and host the games.  Some countries that will be participating are Yemen,  Iran, U.A.E. and Tadjikistan.  The competition will take place in the middle of next year.
