The 34th Congress of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) will be held on Thursday in Bangkok, Thailand.

The AFC Congress will elect two new members to the AFC Executive Committee for the remainder of the 2023 to 2027 term. Additionally, the AFC Lifetime Achievement and Distinguished Service Awards will be presented, with the recipients to be announced after the 4th AFC Executive Committee meeting, scheduled for May 15, 2024.

The 34th AFC Congress will also vote on the Audited Financial Statements and Auditors' Report for the year 2023, which saw the AFC deliver its full suite of world-class competitions as well as landmark education, development, technical and refereeing programmes for the benefit of its MAs and Regional Associations (RAs) and decide on the proposals which were received from several Member Associations to amend/remove certain provisions of the AFC Statutes.

The AFC's progress in recent months, including the staging of the most successful ever edition of the AFC Asian Cup in history in Doha, Qatar, earlier this year, will be highlighted.

The AFC will also be unveiling the new brand and identities of the Confederation's revamped men's three-tier club competitions and the breakthrough AFC Women's Champions League at a special ceremony.
