AFC Champions League
Asia

The AFC Champions League is an annual continental club football competition organised by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC).

Introduced in 2002, the competition replaced the Asian Club Championship which had run since 1985 and which had replaced the Asian Champion Club Tournament (1967-1971) after a 14-year hiatus. It is the premier club tournament in Asia.

The winner of the AFC Champions League qualifies for the FIFA Club World Cup.
