Eight teams set for Round 2 showdown at 2024 AFC U-20 Women’s Asian Cup qualifiers!

The final hurdle awaits eight teams in their quest to clinch their spots for the 2024 AFC U-20 Women’s Asian Cup – Uzbekistan as they gear up for Round 2 of the Qualifiers.

Australia, China, Chinese Taipei, Iran, Lebanon, Myanmar, Nepal and Vietnam will discover their opponents at the official draw in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on Thursday at 3pm.

Having come through Round 1 – held between March 6 and 12 – by topping each of their respective groups, the eight teams will be divided into two groups of four in Round 2, which takes place from June 3 to 11.

Each group will play a one-round league format in a centralised venue, with the winner and runner-up from each group qualifying for the 2024 AFC U-20 Women’s Asian Cup – Uzbekistan Finals. They will be joined by the three highest-seeded teams from the AFC U-19 Women’s Championship Thailand 2019 – Japan, North Korea, and South Korea – as well as host nation, Uzbekistan.

The names of the eight teams will be drawn from four pots, with the seedings based on the rankings of the 2019 AFC U-19 Women’s Championship – Thailand. The teams which did not participate in that tournament – IR Iran, Nepal, Lebanon and Chinese Taipei – have been added as the lowest-ranked sides. The two Host Member Associations will be determined at a later stage.

The seeding pots are as follow

Pot 1: Australia and China

Pot 2: Vietnam and Myanmar

Pot 3: Iran and Nepal

Pot 4: Lebanon and Chinese Taipei
