 AFC U20 Women’s Asian Cup Uzbekistan 2024™ Qualifiers to set stage for new generation of stars to be born

Asia’s future stars will learn of their opponents when the battle lines are determined for the AFC U20 Women’s Asian Cup Uzbekistan 2024™ Qualifiers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on Thursday at 2pm.

Returning to the global stage for the first time since 2019, the age-group tournament is set to shift from its erstwhile identity of an U-19 competition and will be played in an U-20 format.

Round 1 of the Qualifiers is set to take place between March 4 and 12, with 31 Member Associations (MAs) being divided into seven groups of four teams and one group of three teams. The teams will play a one-round league format in the centralised venues of Bangladesh, Cambodia, Jordan, Kyrgyz Republic, Laos, Palestine, Thailand, and Vietnam.

The eight group winners will progress to Round 2, which will be played from June 3 to 11, 2023 where the four best sides will earn a spot in the Finals. 

Joining them in the showpiece, which will take place from March 3 to 16, 2024 in Uzbekistan, are the three highest seeded teams from the AFC U-19 Women’s Championship Thailand 2019 - Japan, DPR Korea, and Korea Republic – as well as host nation, Uzbekistan, against whom all matches in the Qualifiers will be deemed as friendlies.

The names of the contesting 31 MAs will be drawn from four seeding pots and one host pot, to ensure that each host is placed in a different group.  

The sequence in which the teams will learn of their allocated group is listed below:

Pot 1 (teams ranked 4-11): Australia, China PR, Myanmar, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Nepal, and Lebanon

Pot 2 (ranked 12-19): Chinese Taipei, India, Malaysia, and the United Arab Emirates

Pot 3 (Rank 20-25 and 2 teams from pot 4): Mongolia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Guam, Tajikistan, Pakistan and Bhutan

Pot 4 (ranked Rank 26 and below): Indonesia, Iraq, Northern Mariana Islands, Philippines, and Turkmenistan

Hosts Pot: Bangladesh, Cambodia, Jordan, Kyrgyz Republic, Laos, Palestine, Thailand and Vietnam
