Officials have been selected

A record number of referees have been picked for the next Asian Cup 2023 (2024) competition that is going to kick off in January. From 18 member associations within the continent, 33 are main ones together with 37 assistants. If we add 4 more (2 for each role) standby officials we are getting the number of 74 names.
The full list of the men / women in blue can be download from the website of the Asian confederation.
One of the two debut things that are happening on the eighteenth edition is the following: a total of 5 women will appear at the event for the first time (2 main plus 3 assistants). While the other is that history is going to be made for the little monitors from above or we would observe them (video assistant referees) in all 50 games. Just for comparison, this digital system was also first introduced in United Arab Emirates four years ago, but from the quarter-final phase.
