DOHA - Asian Cup organisers will donate
the ticket sales revenue from Tuesday's semi-finals to the
victims of floods in Australia, Thailand and Sri Lanka.
"The proceeds of... the semi-final matches of the AFC Asian
Cup (will go) to a disaster relief fund in order to help those
affected," a joint-statement from the Asian Football Federation
(AFC) and the Qatar Local Organising Committee (QLOC) said on
"Our condolences are offered to those who have lost their
loved ones during these tragic events."
More than 50,000 tickets have been sold so far for the two
matches at the Al Gharafa and Khalifa stadiums in Doha later on
Tuesday with around $300,000 expected to be raised.
Japan face South Korea in the first match before Australia
take on Uzbekistan in the latter contest.
