AFC World Cup Qualification Format
The AFC World Cup qualification is qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup from the Asian region. The qualifiers also act as qualifications for the 2023 AFC Asian Cup.
Forty-six countries will take part in the qualification process, Canada, the US & Mexico who will co-host the 2026 World Cup does not have to qualify.
The fourteen countries ranked fourteenth or lower by FIFA in the Asian region will enter the first round, a 2-legged match of qualifying whilst those ranked higher come in in the second round.
The seven teams which progress from the first round will join the thirty-one who received a bye. As a result, forty teams will form eight groups of five teams each.
The top countries from each group advance to the next third as well as the four best runner-up countries. This creates two groups of six countries in the third round.
Each team plays the others in the group both at home and away. The top two from each group advance directly to the 2026 World Cup.
The two teams who finished third in their groups play a two-legged playoff match. The winner will then play the playoff winner of the CONCACAF to decide which country makes it to the 2026 World Cup.
