The 2012 AFF Cup, sponsored by Suzuki and officially named the 2012 AFF Suzuki Cup,[1] was the ninth edition of the ASEAN Football Championship, the football championship of Southeast Asia. It was co-hosted by Malaysia and Thailand and took place from 24 November to 22 December 2012.[2]

Singapore became the first side to win the ASEAN Football Championship four times, beating Thailand 3–2 on aggregate in the finals. Singapore coach Radojko Avramović also became the most successful coach in tournament history, adding to his wins in 2004 and 2007.[3]

Hosts[edit]

On 17 December 2010, the Philippine Football Federation declared their interest to host the 2012 AFF Suzuki Cup.[4][5] However, with no other reported interest and following the meeting of the AFF Council on 19 February 2011, Malaysia and Thailand were announced as hosts of the preliminary round.[6][7]

Venues[edit]

There were two main venues; the National Stadium, Bukit Jalil in Kuala Lumpur and the Rajamangala Stadium in Bangkok. The secondary venues; the Shah Alam Stadium in Shah Alam, Selangor State and the Supachalasai Stadium in Bangkok for the final round of group games on 30 November and 1 December.[8] The Supachalasai Stadium replaced the Muang Thong Stadium as the alternative venue for the final match day in Group A on 27 November, after itself had been replaced by the Muang Thong Stadium on 17 October.[9] If Thailand reached the semifinals and finals, their home games were played at the Supachalasai Stadium as the Rajamangala was hosting the 2012 Race of Champions.[10] Philippines and Singapore also hosted games due to making the knockout stages. The Philippines hosted at the Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila, the first time an AFF Championship game was held in the Philippines and Singapore hosted at the Jalan Besar Stadium.
