Singapore will be the venue for Southeast Asia’s Suzuki Cup, organizers said on Tuesday.

The tournament, which features the 11 countries in the Asean region, was held on a home-and-away basis in 2018 but will be played in a centralized format due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The competition has already been delayed by a year after being postponed because of coronavirus restrictions.

Defending champions Vietnam has been drawn to play Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia and Laos in Group B.

Host Singapore is in Group A and will meet Thailand, Myanmar, the Philippines and the winner of a playoff featuring Brunei and Timor Leste.

The opening game will be on Dec. 5 with the final scheduled for January 1.
