ACL final to be staged in Tokyo

Kyodo News

The final of the 2010 Asian Champions League will be held in Tokyo in November, the Japan Football Association said Wednesday.

The final on Nov. 13 will be played at National Stadium for the second year in a row.

This year, the ACL will try to ensure that two clubs from the same country will not face each other in the quarterfinals, if the two are the only remaining clubs from that country.

However, teams could possibly face each other, if three or more of them from the same country advance to the quarterfinals.

Last year, Kawasaki Frontale and Nagoya Grampus were drawn to square off against each other in the quarterfinals, leaving just one club from Japan to reach the semifinals.
