There have been two Asian Cup trophies; the first one used between and , and the second one in use since The first trophy came in a form of a bowl with circular base.
It was 42 centimeters tall and weighs 15 kilograms. This base was plaque-free and the winning countries' names were engraved around the base.
During the draw for the group stage on 4 May at the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, an all new trophy made by Thomas Lyte was unveiled.
It is 78 centimeters tall, 42 centimeters wide, and weighs 15 kilograms of silver. Five petals of the lotus symbolize the five sub-confederations under the AFC.
This trophy has a handle on each side, unlike its predecessor. Despite being the second oldest continental football tournament, the AFC Asian Cup has suffered numerous criticisms.
Following the attack on the Saudi diplomatic missions in Iran , Saudi Arabia has rejected playing with Iran and even threatens to withdraw if the AFC refuses to follow, and even extended it to international level.
As a result, North Korea's home matches were moved to Shanghai. At the AFC Asian Cup , there had been concerns over low record of crowds due to little football interests and high costs of traveling between Asian nations leading to then-Australia coach Holger Osieck claiming that the Qatar Armed Forces were used to fill up the stadiums simply for aesthetics, while Australia international Brett Holman commented, "Worldwide it's not recognised as a good tournament".

During the final draw on 4 May , two mascots, Mansour and Jarrah, were unveiled. Mansour is a typical Arab football kid, while Jarrah is an Arabian falcon with lightning speed.
Also on the drawing day on 4 May , an all new trophy made by Thomas Lyte was unveiled. It is 78 centimeters tall, 42 centimeters wide, and weighs 15 kilograms of silver.
Five petals of the lotus symbolized the five sub-confederations under the AFC. The tournament organizers held a competition where fans got to choose and vote on slogans to be used on the team buses of the 24 participating national teams.
The tournament was broadcast live by around 80 TV channels covering the whole world. ESPN5 made a "competitive bid" to broadcast the tournament on free-to-air television in the Philippines, but it was not accepted by the AFC.
In the Middle East, where Qatar-based BeIN Sports has rights to broadcast the Asian Cup in the region, BeoutQ allegedly backed by Saudi Arabia also illegally broadcast the tournament as part of a proxy conflict in a diplomatic crisis between Qatar and various Arab states.
This was seen as a sign of warming relations between Israel and the UAE. Sport 5 officially broadcast the opening match between the UAE and Bahrain , and had remained active until the end of the tournament.
At the end of the tournament, AFC announced that the Asian Cup was the most engaging in history across all social platforms reaching Rashid Stadium was one of the smallest stadiums in the tournament with only 12, seats and many non-ticket holding fans attempted to watch the match without buying tickets.
As a result of Qatar diplomatic crisis between Qatar and number of its neighbours since 5 June , including the United Arab Emirates as the host country, the UAE suspended all direct flights between the two countries and initially banned Qatari citizens from entering their country,  although the Emirati government later announced that it would permit Qatari citizens temporary entry into the country pending approval from Emirati authorities.
The director stated that there was no evidence that shows he was unable to enter and stated that this news has "political purposes". He stated "We try to keep sports away from politics.
The diplomatic crisis prevented many fans from attending Qatar matches in the UAE. This had affected attendance figures in Qatar matches, as little more than people spectated the Group E clash between North Korea and Qatar on 13 January.
According to Qatar's Sports Press Committee, five Qatar-based media representatives were denied entry into the UAE despite having entry visas and receiving assurances that they would be allowed to attend and report on the tournament by the AFC.
According to Al Jazeera, the final match , which was won by Qatar, was played "almost entirely without" Qatari support from the stands, due to the travel ban.
Apart from their attendance, they carried flags in the stadium and continued to cheer for Al Annabi [The Maroons] players and sing songs throughout the game.
During the semi-final match between Qatar and hosts United Arab Emirates , some UAE supporters threw bottles and footwear into the match after Qatari players scored their second goal; the latter is considered to be highly offensive in the Middle East.
One of the Qatari players, Salem Al Hajri , was struck on the head with a shoe after Qatar scored its third goal. This conduct was preceded by booing the Qatari national anthem.
The two countries had had a hostile relationship and had cut diplomatic ties due to the ongoing diplomatic crisis.
On 30 January , soon after the hosts lost to Qatar in the semi-finals, the United Arab Emirates Football Association lodged a formal appeal to the AFC over the eligibility of Sudanese-born Almoez Ali and Iraqi-born Bassam Al-Rawi , claiming that they did not qualify to play for Qatar on residency grounds per Article 7 of the Regulations Governing the Application of the FIFA statutes, which states a player is eligible to play for a representative team if he has "lived continuously for at least five years after reaching the age of 18 on the territory of the relevant association".
A British-Sudanese football fan claimed he was beaten and arrested for wearing a Qatar football shirt to a match in which Qatar was playing and then, after reporting to the police, arrested and accused of wasting police time and making false statements of being assaulted.
The police claimed that the fan had admitted to making false statements and his offense will be processed through the courts.
This is instead an instance of a person seeking media attention and wasting police time. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
