ProTV is the delegated technical producer for beINsports to produce the AFC Women’s Asian Cup Jordan 2018 games. ProTV will produce the events from two venues; Amman International Stadium and King Abdullah II Stadium.
According to the AFC website, hosts Jordan are the first side from West Asia to host the premier tournament, and with capacity crowds expected to attend all three of their group stage games, expectations are already high ahead of the nation’s opening fixture.
Jordan head coach Michael Dickey believes passionate home support could well provide his side with an added advantage as they prepare to embark on their AFC Women’s Asian Cup 2018 Group A campaign against the Philippines on Friday.

“We believe that playing here at home and having the fans get behind the team is going to be huge for us,” declared the American who assumed his role in May last year.
“We have played at home a couple of times already, and I have seen a very good reaction from the players when we have done that.
“So, we are excited about playing in Jordan and having the fans support us, and hopefully that will be a bit of an intimidation for the opponents that we play against. That is our hope and I believe that will drive us on to win games.”
The eight teams, competing for continental glory, represent some of the leading women’s football countries of the world and the incredible variety of the Asian continent and beyond. The teams include; China Peoples Republic; reigning champions Japan; Korea Republic, Philippines; Thailand and Vietnam; and Australia. Australia will cover the biggest distance to travel to the Finals and will join host Jordan in Amman as the competition starts on Friday, April 6. The final will be played on April 20 at 20:00 local time.
