AFC U-16 Women's Championship Wikipedia
The AFC U-16 Women's Championship is a biennial women's football tournament for youth teams organised by the Asian Football Confederation. It further serves as the qualifying competition for the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup.
The tournament was first held in 2005 as an Under-17 edition. With only eleven teams entering in the inaugural year, there was no qualification held. In 2007 the tournament switched to the Under-16 modus, again eight teams entered the competition. In 2009 twelve teams entered and thus for a first time a qualifying round was held. The 2011 edition featured two qualification rounds. Here five seeded teams for the finals were joined by an additional 13 teams fighting for a final sixth spot.
