They will meet Japan, Hong Kong and Chinese Taipei in the pool stage as the Asia Cup combines the Asia and Oceania regions for the first time ever.

The 16-team format will be played in a round robin group stage with the top three teams from each group advancing to the Second Phase.

The tournament will then be played in a knockout format from the Quarter-Finals onwards through the Semi-Finals and bronze and gold medal matches.

Earning the new look trophy, the Asia Cup Champion will go on to rule the continent for the next four years.

Running from August 8-20, stay tuned for a full schedule announcement for the tournament as well as a team announcement for the Helloworld Travel Boomers in the coming weeks.
