The Indonesian national team will benefit if the AFC is able to approve Indonesia to host the 2023 Asian Cup. Previously, the Minister of Youth and Sports (Menpora), Zainudin Amali, had received an application from PSSI to nominate himself to host the 2023 Asian Cup.

Menpora ensured that the government had approved the request and supported PSSI’s move to bid to host the 2023 Asian Cup.

“There is an application from PSSI to host the 2023 Asian Cup. The government has supported this step,” said the Minister of Youth and Sports, Tuesday (28/6/2022).

“What the results will be (we’ll see later), because South Korea, Japan, and Australia also applied. We support PSSI if you want to host it,” he added.

Of course, the Indonesian national team will get a tremendous blessing if it manages to host the 2023 Asian Cup.

The reason is, if the status as the host, the Indonesian national team will be joined in pot one so as to avoid a number of strong countries in the Yellow Continent in the 2023 Asian Cup.

In pot one, Indonesia will have the same status as Iran, Japan, South Korea, Australia, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia. These six countries are the toughest contestants in Asia.
