Dato’ Windsor John, the AFC General Secretary, said: “The Asian Football Confederation is pleased to welcome UAE Exchange on board as an official sponsor for our -national team competitions. The AFC competitions are growing in terms of fixtures, excitement and audiences. More people are watching live in stadia and on television than ever before.
