The Amman, Orthodox and Ahli clubs have all received their AFC license for the very first time, which will allow them to take part in continental championships if they meet the confederation’s licensing requirements, which include athletic, infrastructural, administrative, legal and financial criteria.

All three clubs have managed to make the AFC’s list of professional women’s clubs in Asia.

The JFA attributed the achievement to recent and ongoing cooperation with the AFC, noting that it will go into effect with the beginning of the 2021 season.

The JFA had previously visited the Kingdom’s women’s clubs to propose the prospect of pursuing an AFC license and has said that it will be working closely with these clubs to ensure that they abide by continental federation’s membership standards.

In the past, the AFC has paid special attention to women’s football, having organized championship across age groups, both within Jordan and in the region. The AFC hosted the 2018 Asia Women’s Cup in 2018 and has more recently hosted the Jordanian Women’s Pro League.
