The Asian Football Confederation and Local Organising Committee of the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023 launched the Official Logo of the tournament on Thursday. The logo unveiling took place during the competition’s Final Draw at the Katara Opera House.

The newly-launched logo combines the silhouette of the famous AFC Asian Cup trophy with unique cultural elements that embody the competition’s spirit.

The lines of the trophy draw inspiration from the feathers of the majestic falcon, a bird with historical significance to the nation of Qatar, and the petals of Asia’s indigenous lotus flower.

The top of the logo is adorned with the iconic maroon, Qatar’s national color. The typography is inspired by Arabic calligraphy, paying homage to the nation’s language and its beautiful calligraphy. Finally, the logo is tailed with a shape resembling a diamond, which is the Arabic “nuqta” or dot that can be seen across many Arabic letters and is considered to be a symbol of clarity in Arabic writing.

Meanwhile, the continental showpiece, scheduled for January 12 to February 10, 2024, promises to be a thrilling affair with seven former winners among the 24 teams — seeded according to their latest FIFA World Ranking — divided into six groups.

Hosts and defending champions Qatar have been drawn into Group A, alongside China, Tajikistan and Lebanon. Group B consists of 2015 champions Australia, Uzbekistan, Syria and India while Group C features three-time winners Iran, 1996 runners-up UAE, Hong Kong and Palestine.

Record four-time title winners Japan, Indonesia, 2007 champions Iraq and Vietnam make up Group D while twice champions South Korea, Malaysia, Jordan and Bahrain form Group E. Three-time winners Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Kyrgyz Republic and Oman (Group F) complete the line-up.

The top two sides from each group and the four best third-placed teams will advance to the Round of 16 stage.
