India will be hosting 20th edition of AFC Womens Asian Cup between 20 January to 6 February.
This is the second time India will host this prestigious tournament. Previously India hosted 3rd Asian Cup at Calicut in 1980.
Japan are the defending champions.
12 teams will compete in 3 groups
Group A India, China, Chinese Taipei, Iran
Group B Australia, Thailand, Phillipines, Indonesia
Group C Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Myanmar
Andheri Stadium Mumbai, D Y Patil Stadium Navi Mumbai and Balewadi Stadium, Pune. All games will be played behind closed doors due to Covid.
so total 12 teams in all taking part in a competition, out of which 5 automatically qualifies. seems a good deal for AFC, even more than for Men's.
this is the most realistic chance for us to qualify for the WC.
Only one 3rd place team in group stage will be knocked out. This is a real chance for India. Just don't lose all three matches.
