The 2022 edition will also feature 12 nations - an increase of four from previous tournaments.
AFC President Shaikh Salman bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa said: “India 2022 promises to be another spectacular celebration of the women’s game throughout the Continent. Together with the LOC, we are confident that the upcoming edition will showcase the resolve of the Asian football family towards staging a truly memorable tournament.

Our Goal for All is a fitting representation of the values of our tournament.
“The AFC Women’s Asian Cup India 2022™ belongs to every woman and football lover across the Continent. It stands for the unified efforts of all stakeholders in creating a bright future for women’s football that keeps encompassing unchartered ground.”
