Soccer Betting

Betting on soccer has become a worldwide phenomenon.

Asian Cup 2015 - Bet Now

The 16th edition of the AFC Asian Cup will kick off at the Rectangular Stadium in Melbourne, Australia on 9 January 2015. A total of 16 international soccer teams will battle it out for the overall title and the right to participate in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, to be held in Russia.

The tournament is being held outside of the Asian continent for the first time after Australia submitted the only bid to host the event. The matches will take place in five different cities, all located on the east coast of Australia: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra and Newcastle.

The hosts were handed automatic entry alongside Japan and South Korea who qualified due to their finishing positions at the previous tournament. North Korea and Palestine both qualified as previous winners of the now defunct AFC Challenge Cup, and the remaining teams earned their places via the official qualification process. Palestine are the only team competing at the tournament for the very first time.

Tournament History

The Asian Cup has been organised by the Asian Football Confederation since 1956 and is the second oldest continental football tournament in the world behind the Copa America. The tournament was held every four years from 1956 until 2004 after which it was moved forward by one year to avoid clashing with other major sporting events.

The winners are crowned Champions of Asia and also gain entry to the prestigious FIFA Confederations Cup where they get to compete against the FIFA World Cup winners, and the six other continental tournament champions. Reigning champions Japan have won four of the last six tournaments.
