|2019 AFF–EAFF Champions Trophy|
The AFF–EAFF Champions Trophy is a biennial football match organised by ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) and East Asian Football Federation (EAFF) and contested by the reigning champions of the two main Asian international football competitions, the AFF Championship and the EAFF E-1 Football Championship. It takes place during the FIFA international match window.
The first AFF–EAFF Champions Trophy match, to be played on a single-match format, was initially scheduled to be held on 26 March 2019 at the Mỹ Đình National Stadium in Hanoi, Vietnam between the national football teams of Vietnam and South Korea. However, on 19 February 2019, it was announced that the inaugural AFF-EAFF Champions Trophy match would be postponed until an unclear date in 2020 after both contesting teams failed to settle on a date for the match within the 2019 calendar.
The trophy will be contested biennially, with AFF and EAFF rotating the host venue duties and the former staging the first-ever Champions Trophy. Vietnam automatically won hosting right to the inaugural Champions Trophy match on 15 December 2018 after beating Malaysia 3–2 on aggregate score in the 2018 AFF Championship Final. A memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the organisation of the AFF–EAFF Champions Trophy was signed in Hanoi, Vietnam on 15 December 2018 by AFF Deputy President, Maj General Khiev Sameth, and EAFF President, Chung Mong-gyu.
