The ASEAN Football Championship (AFF Championship), is a biennial international association football competition organized by the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF), contested by the national teams of Southeast Asia. It was founded as the Tiger Cup after Singapore-based Asia Pacific Breweries, makers of Tiger Beer, sponsored the competition from its inauguration in 1996 until the 2004 edition. The competition was renamed as the ASEAN Football Championship for the 2007 edition as a result of a termination of the sponsorship deal. From 2008, Japanese auto-company Suzuki bought the naming rights for the competition, and the competition has therefore been named the AFF Suzuki Cup for sponsorship reasons.

Summaries[edit]
