The final draw for the AFC U-23 Asian Cup Qatar 2024has taken place in Doha.

Sixteen teams from across Asia were drawn into four groups. The tournament will take place between April 15 – May 3, 2024, with the top three teams qualifying for the men’s football tournament at the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris.

For Jassim Al Jassim, CEO of the AFC U-23 Asian Cup Qatar 2024 Local Organizing Committee (LOC), this tournament will showcase Asia’s next generation of footballers as they compete for a place on the world stage at next year’s Summer Olympics.

“Being able to host Asia’s best young talent is an exciting prospect for Qatar, and for the continent. Not only does this tournament give countries the chance to build strong football foundations, but it also acts as an important milestone for young players looking to make their mark on the international stage,” said Al Jassim.

In Group A, hosts Qatar will face Australia, Jordan and this year’s only debutant Indonesia. Group B brings together Japan, Korea Republic the United Arab Emirates and China PR. In Group C, there is Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Thailand and Tajikistan. Group D includes Uzbekistan, Vietnam, Kuwait and Malaysia.

This will be the 6th edition of the biennial competition. Iraq, Japan, Uzbekistan, South Korea and Saudi Arabia claimed the first five iterations of the competition.

The AFC U-23 Asian Cup Qatar 2024will be played for the first time in FIFA World Cupstadiums and will take advantage of Qatar’s modern footballing infrastructure, most notably the country’s compact nature.
