It is learned that currently, 13 venues for the 2018 AUSF Football Cup have all completed, involving total investment of 150 million yuan. The China Qualifying Tournament of the 2018 AUSF Football Cup, which was just finished on August 24, testified that the quality of lightening, large screen, lawn, function room, stand, track, and other venue facilities could basically meet the demands of the AUSF Football Cup.
Ayub Hahafiah noted that Jinjiang is fully qualified to host the AUSF Football Cup, and he hoped to see more Chinese and Minnan (southern Fujian) elements in the opening and closing ceremonies of the event. He also stressed that the opening time of each exercise venue should be designed, specific procedures should be worked out for volunteers, security, medical care, and other aspects, and relevant personnel should follow those procedures.
As the 2018 AUSF Football Cup will be hosted two months later, Jinjiang will make concerted, coordinated efforts to enhance the quality of venues, solicit guidance of experts from superior departments, and do a good work in anti-doping, cheer-leading, team selection, and other aspects, said an official of Jinjiang City.
