 The Olympic preliminaries will be postponed to April, when the Chinese womens football team will return to China to face South Korea


According to the original plan, the two rounds of match between China Womens football team and South Korea team will be held on March 6 and 11, with China team playing first and then visiting. As a result of the outbreak, the Chinese team continued to stay in Sydney, Australia, after taking part in the Olympic preliminary group match in February. After communicating with the Chinese womens Football Association, the Chinese Football Association decided to arrange the home match on March 11 in Sydney.

However, due to the continuous development of the epidemic situation in some member association countries of AFC, including South Korea, the host city of Longren, South Korea, which originally planned to host the home match of South Korea team, has given up undertaking the match, so the home match arrangement of South Korea team is facing changes. On the evening of February 27, AFC confirmed through announcement that the two rounds of China South Korea womens football match was initially postponed to April, but the specific date is uncertain.

It is understood that FIFA has set an international competition day cycle for both mens and womens national teams. The international match day cycle of womens football in April is arranged between the first ten days and the middle ten days of that month, so the Asian Football Association, with the approval of FIFA, finally set the date of the two rounds of matches on April 9 and 14 respectively. The results were also announced by the Asian Football Association on the evening of the 28th.

Although the schedule of the Olympic preliminaries has been adjusted again and again, and the schedule has been delayed again and again, it is not necessarily a bad thing for the Chinese womens football team. Although the two teams will decide which country (region) and which city will depend on the development of the epidemic at that time, if the epidemic situation in China improves at that time, it is not ruled out theoretically that the Chinese womens football team will arrange the home match in China.
