Eagles to welcome new opponents in Group I

Geylang International will have the company of Cambodia’s Visakha FC and Timor Leste’s Lalenok United FC in Group I should the AFC Cup for the Eagles proceed.

This follows the latest announcement from the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Competitions Committee where the vacant spot of the 2021 AFC Cup has been decided after Philippines’ Kaya FC-Iloilo secured their debut qualification for the AFC Champions League (East) Group Stage.

Taking into consideration the absence of a standby club from the Philippine Football Federation (PFF), and as part of its commitment to ensure the consistency and integrity of the AFC Cup 2021, the Competitions Committee decided to cancel the AFC Cup Playoff Stage match between Visakha FC from Cambodia and Timor Leste’s Lalenok United FC.

Both clubs have now qualified for the AFC Cup Group Stage with Visakha FC occupying position I1 and Lalenok United FC taking their place in I2, alongside Geylang International and Terengganu FC from Malaysia.
