MUMBAI: The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with AIPS Asia, the Asian wing of the international sports media association to enhance media coverage of football across the continent and offer exciting training and learning opportunities for budding football journalists. 

The AFC will look to involve AIPS Asia in its media and communications workshops and both organisations will aim to launch new annual journalism awards, the Best Male and Female Football Journalist of the Year in Asia Award.
