2022 AFC Futsal Club Championship

The AFC Futsal Club Championship is the current annual Asian futsal club competition hosted by the Asian Football Confederation.

For the inaugural edition, the AFC Futsal Club Committee decided to make it an invitation event, and each Member Association has been asked to nominate their Futsal national league champions for the tournament.

The competition is similar to AFC Champions League.

History and format

A trial edition, named 2006 Asia Futsal Cup, was run in 2006 with six teams participating. Iranian team Shensa Saveh beat Uzbek Ardus FC 5–1 in the final.[1] The first recognised edition by the AFC was held in 2010 and ran with ten teams, forming two groups of five teams. The top two finishers then proceeded to the semi-finals. Since 2015 the final tournament is played with 12 teams. If more national league champions wish to enter a team, all but the top three finishers of the last tournament and the host nation, have to enter a qualification stage.
