The complete fixture, result, table and top scorer guide to the biggest women's football competition in Asia, the 2022 Women's Asian Cup

The 20th edition of the AFC Women's Asian Cup will feature 12 teams from the continent, when it is held in India in 2022. It has been expanded to 12 teams from eight to make the tournament more competitive. 

The championship will also act as the final stage of Asian qualification for the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. Five teams will qualify for the main event directly while two of them will progress to the inter-confederation play-offs. 

Japan are the defending champions of the Women's Asian Cup, having won it in 2018. However, China and Australia will be looking to dethrone the Nadeshikos.

Initially scheduled to be held in 2021, the tournament was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and will now kick start on January 20, 2022 in India.

The 12 teams have been split into three groups, with the top two teams of each group and the two best third-placed teams qualifying for the quarter-finals.

Hosts India have been placed in Group A alongside China, Chinese Taipei, and Iran. Meanwhile, Australia, Thailand, Philippines, and Indonesia have been placed in Group B. Defending champions Japan find themselves in Group C along with South Korea, Vietnam, and Myanmar.
