Group stage fixtures for the Asian Cup 2019

The AFC Asian Cup 2019 is already up and running, but there are plenty more games to come before it finishes on February 1.

There are 24 teams competing in the tournament, which is the largest it’s ever been. The matches are taking place in eight stadiums across Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Al Ain and Sharjah. The group stages run until January 17, and there are 36 games during this stage.

If you're not going to the live games, you can always join in the fun in one of the fan zones.

But tickets start from Dhs25, so we hope that lots of you will take the chance to watch some live sport while it's here.
