Malaysia, Thailand confirmed as co-hosts for 2012 edition

The group stages of the next tournament will be played in Malaysia and Thailand, the Asean Football Federation (AFF) have confirmed.

Dates for the 2012 edition, which is normally played in December, have still to be fixed.

Malaysia won the AFF Suzuki Cup 2010 title for the first time last December thanks to a 4-2 aggregate victory over Indonesia in the two-legged final.

The tournament was rated a huge success with big crowds and massive television viewership for the group matches in Vietnam and Indonesia and the semi-finals and final.

Malaysia last hosted the Asean Football Championship alongside Vietnam in 2004 while Thailand co-hosted with Indonesia in 2008.
