The AFC Women's Asian Cup 2022 will be contested in India from January 20 to February 6, with twelve nations competing for the famous trophy. The 20th edition of the AFC Women's Asian Cup trophy is significant for India because it is the nation's second time hosting the event after 1979.

The AFC Women

The AFC Women's Football Committee offered India as the match's host, and India was selected in June 2020. The nation is hosting the tournament for the second time, the previous being in 1979.  The final tournament was increased from eight to twelve teams for the first time in the competition. It is the penultimate stage of Asians qualifying for the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, which Australia has already competed for as a co-host. 5 teams would qualify for the World Cup directly through the knockout stage, while two more will go to the inter-confederation play-offs. Japan is the two-time reigning champion, however they were ousted in the semi-finals on penalties by China PR. China PR proceeded to win the championship, their eighth overall, by overcoming South Korea 3–2 in the finale.
