Qualification process[edit | edit source]

Of the 47 AFC member associations, a total of 22 teams entered the competition. Unlike the previous edition, there will be a qualification and teams will be divided into four zones, namely ASEAN Zone, Central Zone, East Zone and West Zone. The 12 spots in the final tournament are distributed as follows:

  • Host: 1 spot
  • ASEAN Zone: 3 spots
  • Cental Zone: 3 spots
  • East Zone: 2 spots
  • West Zone: 3 spots

Draw[edit | edit source]

The draw was held on 30 August 2018 at the AFC House in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.[2]There was no draw for ASEAN Zone since there were only five teams. The draw mechanisms of East Zone and West Zone are as follows:

  • East Zone: six teams from East Asia were drawn into two groups of three teams.
  • West Zone: six teams from West Asia were drawn into two groups of three teams.

The teams were seeded according to their performance in the 2017 AFC U-20 Futsal Championship.
