10 November 2021, Kuala Lumpur - This year’s AFF Suzuki Cup event will be a celebration of the Stars and Superheroes of the event – the teams, players, fans – but also the frontliners across ASEAN that have been battling the pandemic to keep our communities safe.


With the excitement building ahead of the AFF Suzuki Cup 2020, the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) and commercial partner SPORTFIVE today unveiled the tournament’s themes that will set the tone for a show-stopping event taking place in Singapore from 5 December to 1 January 2022.

Starring the Teams and Players


The exhilarating football action, passionate fanbase and intense rivalry amongst teams have always been a staple for the AFF Suzuki Cup with fans ever eager to prove their team’s superiority over their opposition.


While the pandemic has caused some disruptions, these rivalries have not disappeared but merely went into hibernation. Leading up to the AFF Suzuki Cup 2020 in December, fans are called upon to rise again and reignite old rivalries to show that #RivalriesNeverDie.


Team Masks


There will be new team masks that reimagine the image and identity of each ASEAN nation.


Each team mask is visually crafted to personify the respective football federations and fans can look forward to seeing these masks across the AFF Suzuki Cup channels and have the opportunity to interact with the masks as filters on the tournament's social media platforms.

Superheroes: The Frontliners


Off the pitch, AFF will be using the AFF Suzuki Cup 2020 as a platform for the ASEAN football family to come together and thank the real-life superheroes – the frontliners, for their sacrifice, compassion and dedication during these unprecedented times.


To shine the spotlight on these superheroes, AFF has dedicated the tagline “Emerging Stronger Together” and planned a series of CSR initiatives for the ASEAN football family, including the teams, players and the millions of fans across the region, to pay tribute to all frontliners and thank them for their efforts and hard work over the past few years.
