沙特阿拉伯足球联合会(SAFF)已经正式提交了举办2027年亚洲杯比赛的申请。

有不少国家都希望承办亚洲杯这项四年一度的亚洲足球盛事,亚足联(AFC)已经开始接收各国足协的申请。

SAFF现在将正式提出申请。在过去的两年中,沙特阿拉伯已经成功举办了意大利超级杯、两位重量级拳王安东尼-约书亚和安迪-鲁伊兹的沙漠争霸战以及电动方程式锦标赛(Formula E electric car-racing series)。这些赛事的成功经验将成为他们申办亚洲杯的有效支撑。

SAFF的主席亚西尔-本-哈桑-米沙尔(Yasser bin Hassan Al-Mishal)表示,将成立一个专门的委员会来负责申办事宜。

亚足联早在去年12月就表示将尽快确定2027年亚洲杯的东道主,以便承办国有更充足的准备时间。

最近的一届亚洲杯由阿联酋在去年举办,这也是亚洲杯决赛圈首次由16支球队扩军到24支球队。最终卡塔尔队在决赛中击败日本队获得冠军。

中国在去年被确定为2023年亚洲杯的主办国。这项赛事将在北京、天津、上海、重庆、成都、西安、大连、青岛、厦门和苏州这十个主办城市进行。

最近几个月,体育版权商们越来越频繁地听到不再让沙特阿拉伯举办赛事的呼声,而BeIN传媒集团(BeIN Media Group)的首席执行官尤瑟夫-艾尔-奥拜德利(Yousef Al-Obaidly)就是其中的一位旗帜人物。

BeIN遭到了沙特阿拉伯非法体育转播盗版企业BeoutQ的严重冲击。去年十月,艾尔-奥拜德利就曾以意甲联赛和西班牙足协为例:这两大体育赛事版权商“仍然认为在这个不断通过盗版窃取他们所有媒体合作伙伴商业利益的国家举办他们的超级杯比赛没有任何问题”,但这显然是不合理的。
