Ten metropolitan areas across China will host the 24-crew match, which will be held about 31 days, three days more than the 28-day showpiece in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in 2019.
China will host the event for the next time just after organising it in 2004.
“We are confident that the upcoming match in China will be the most important and best in Asian football heritage,” AFC Standard Secretary Windsor John mentioned.
