The AFF U-19 Youth Championship is an annual international football competition contested by the national teams of the members of the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) and occasionally invited nations from the rest of Asia. The tournament was previously played at under-20 level, however, the AFF followed the lead of the Asian Football Confederation after they renamed it's U-20 competition to fall in line with FIFA's naming conventions and also to reflect the age of the players at the competition. Thailand were the champions in the first ever edition in 2002.
Famous quotes containing the word youth:
“I cannot give them my confidence; pardon me, gentlemen, confidence is a plant of slow growth in an aged bosom: youth is the season of credulity.”
—William, Earl Of Pitt (17081778)
