AKIPRESS.COM - The Asian Football Confederation has created a so-called 'Central AFC' Zone, the press service of the Confederation reported.
The zone's creation was approved at Monday's AFC Extraordinary Congress that will see the current South & Central Zone split into two.
The proposal, which was submitted by the Football Federation of Iran, will see Iran itself and Tajikistan grouped with Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan in a Central Zone which will be recognized in the AFC Statutes.
The AFC will host an Extraordinary Congress in the period prior to the elective Congress in 2015 to determine the number of seats assigned to each zone on the Executive Committee.
