Chinese clubs have started their preparations earlier to meet the criteria to participate in the 2013 edition of the AFC Champions League, Chinese Football Association (CFA) President Yu Hongchen has said.
The AFC Special Mission Team (SMT) started its second inspection for the Asian Champions League 2013 season by meeting with CFA and Chinese Super League (CSL) representatives in Beijing, reports the official AFC website.
"This time we have started our preparations earlier," said Yu.
"Holding seminars for all 16 clubs in both top divisions of our league has been instrumental in raising their awareness of ACL requirements and criteria.
"However, we look forward to your support and recommendations to help our clubs reach their potential."
