The 2010 AFF Cup, sponsored by Suzuki and P&G and officially named the 2010 AFF Suzuki Cup,[1] took place on December 1–29, 2010.[2] Indonesia and Vietnam hosted the preliminary stage from 1 to 7 December for Group A and 2 to 8 December for Group B. The semi-finals were played home and away with the first legs on 15 and 16 December 2010, and the second legs on 18 and 19 December 2010. The final was played over two legs on 26 December 2010 and 29 December 2010.[3]

Indonesia appeared in their fourth final while the Philippines qualified for the semi-finals for the first time under the management of Simon McMenemy.[4] Malaysia subsequently won their first ever title since they first appeared in the final in the inaugural edition,[5] beating Indonesia 4–2 on aggregate in the finals. Malaysia became the first nation to win the AFF Cup (including tournaments held under earlier formats), despite losing two games in the tournament (both to Indonesia).

Hosts[edit]

On 17 February 2009, Vietnam declared their interest in hosting the eighth Suzuki Cup.[6] On 21 April 2009, the Vietnamese newspaper VietNamNet announced that Vietnam would co-host the Championship along with Indonesia.[7][8]

Venues[edit]

There were two main venues; the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta and the My Dinh National Stadium in Hanoi with two secondary venues which will be used simultaneously with the main venue on the final match day of the group stage. Originally, the secondary venue for Group B was the Hàng Đẫy Stadium in Hanoi. However on 22 November 2010, the Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) announced that it would not be ready in time for the tournament due to ongoing renovations and was replaced by the Chùa Cuõi Stadium aka the Thiên Trường Stadium.[9] For Group A, the original secondary venue was the Jalak Harupat Soreang Stadium in Bandung but on 24 November 2010 a week after an AFF meeting, it was announced that it would be replaced with the Gelora Sriwijaya Stadium.[10] Teams qualifying for the semi-finals would also host a game, in this case, Malaysia whom qualified used their National Stadium for the semi final and final.
