From its humble beginnings in 1956, the AFC Asian Cup has grown into the continent’s biggest football event, one that stands proudly alongside any top level competition around the globe in terms of excitement, entertainment and organisation.

Within the span of five decades, the AFC Asian Cup has encompassed the huge continent bringing together Asia’s top national teams every four years in a fantastic feast of top-notch football.

Two years after AFC came into being in 1954, the first ever AFC Asian Cup was staged in Hong Kong with seven of the 12 founding members vying for the title to become Asia’s best football team.

If the first edition featured only seven teams, the 2015 edition promises to be a global phenomenon with 46 countries across the continent primed to participate in Australia in three years’ time, representing more than half of the world’s population in the qualifying stages before the field is whittled down to the final 16.

This year we see the start of the 2015 AFC Asian Cup qualifier matches, which will determine the participating teams for the 2015 AFC Asian Cup. A total of 16 teams will compete in the 2015 AFC Asian Cup.
