BeIN makes Asian Cup final FTA

Qatar’s beIN Media Group has announced that the final of this year’s Asian Cup national team football tournament will be shown on its free-to-air channel.

The tournament is currently taking place in the United Arab Emirates and concludes later today (Friday) when Qatar meets Japan in the final.

BeIN said it will make the final available for free “as a gift to its Arabic viewers”.

The match will be shown on beIN Sports Max 1 and Max 2, as well as the broadcaster’s free-to-air channel. The match kicks off at 2pm UK time.

This year marks the first time that Qatar has reached the final of the Asian Cup. Japan has won the tournament a record four times.
