NEW DELHI: India’s matches in the AFC Under-20 Asian Cup qualifiers in Group H will be streamed live on the Indian Football Team Facebook page with English commentary and graphics. 

The live streaming will be available on Friday, October 14, 7pm IST (Iraq vs India), October 16, 7pm IST (India vs Australia) and October 18, 10pm IST (India vs Kuwait).

This was made possible despite the fact that as a rule, all rights for AFC age group qualifiers remain with the host association, who have no contractual obligation to produce/share the feed with participating member associations unlike the final rounds of the tournament, which is conducted centrally and all rights remain with the AFC.

However, the AIFF was in constant communication with the Kuwait Football Association over the past weeks. As a result, the KFA on Friday agreed to provide the AIFF with the satellite feed to the Indian territory only via Kuwait TV with the possibility to stream live on Facebook.
