The date for the 2024 Asian Cup U-23 Qualifiers, in which the Myanmar team will compete, has been set and will be held in September.
The qualifiers will be held from 4 to 12 September 2023, and more than 40 AFC member countries will compete. The Myanmar U-22 team will participate in many international competitions this year, and the Asian Cup U-23 qualifier is one of the international competitions to be contested in 2023. The Myanmar U-22 team will compete in the 32nd SEA Games to be held in Cambodia in May as the first international competition this year, the Asian Cup U-23 qualifiers in September, the 19th Asian Games in October, and ASEAN U-22 Championship in December.
The Asian Cup U-23 tournament (previously the Asian U-23 Championship tournament) began in 2014, and the Myanmar team only qualified once in the 2014 tournament and did not qualify in any of the subsequent competitions. The Myanmar team will take training and prepare for all the international competitions to compete this year, and preparations will be made after the appointment of a new coach. Former head coach of the Myanmar U-22 team Popov resigned in early December 2022 and the team is planning to appoint a new head coach. — Ko Nyi Lay/KZL
