AFC Cup 2016 Groups

It doesn't seem that long ago when JDT were lifting the AFC Cup for the first time in their history and indeed becoming the first South East Asian side to garner success in continental competition for yonks.

But here we are looking forward to next season's version and with no Indonesian teams, nor Kuwaiti, it looks like I won't be getting too many passport stamps tracking down games. The groups have been decided, later will be the dates...

In one of them quirks of fate football likes to throw up, JDT are again drawn with Bengalaru...they began their journey to glory playing them months back in an ACL qualifier. There are sides from Laos, Bangladesh, Philippines...seemingly everywhere.

Except for Indonesia. Still, if Andik Vermansyah (pictured right) can guide Selangor to victory in the Malaysia Cup tomorrow and is rewarded with a new contract he at least gets a place at Asia's second top table.
