Qatar got the green flag to host the tournament and they have already released the four venues where the thrilling clashes will take place.

The big names to look out for this season include Kuryu Matsuki from Japan, who is not just a 20-year-old captain, but the one who delivered a brilliant strike to snatch all three points for his side in the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup. Another star player is Bae Junho from South Korea. He played a pivotal role in his side's qualification for the semi-finals in last year's FIFA U-20 World Cup in Argentina.

Saudi Arabia is the defending champion of the AFC U-23 Asian Cup this time and the team under the magnificent management of Saad Al-Shehri seeks a ticket to Paris, which comes only after the team finishes under the top 3 contenders. The fourth-placed team will have to win a match against a CAF to participate in the biggest sports event - the Olympics.
