Suspension of duels, clubs pulling out and new host emerge

On the fourth and fifth month of 2021 there were four major news concerning the Asian club international events: three of the same tournament and one from the other.
From 23 April Oman do not have representatives at the AFC Cup. Both Al Nasr and Al Seeb have withdrawn from the competition, because of high number of infected citizens with the epidemic that that country had back then. Therefore some groups have three clubs instead of four.
Due to the same reason, on 03 May came the story of how Hong Kong has suggested and it was quickly accepted by the confederation that games at group J should be rescheduled. It was supposed to begin from 14 until 20 May, and now the East zone of the identical competition will kick off on 23 as far as 29 June.
Male, the capital of Maldives, had to welcome the clubs from group D. However six days later, duels from the South zone of the AFC Cup were suspended where everything had to commence from 14 to 21 May. Without naming the cause from the organization of why this was done, most media speculated that violation of epidemic protocols from some members of Bengaluru (that were saw outside) is to blame before they had to play their duel against Mohun Bagan (two of them are from India) at the play-off phase.
And finally, in this report out of last Monday the remaining two groups of the Champions league have a host. Letters from A until G together with J were designated hospitality countries on 10 March, while H and I are going to be played in Uzbekistan out of 25 June until 11 July.
