The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) represents Asia in the world of football, covering the diverse continent with 46 Member Associations and one Associate Member. The AFC’s mandate stretches across the Continent and beyond through the AFC’s five zones: West, Central, South, ASEAN and East. This covers two thirds of the world's population, and importantly, two thirds of the world's young people live within the boundaries of Asia.
With its Vision and Mission, the AFC has signalled its intent to become a world-leading football Confederation. The long-term strategy places the AFC’s focus firmly on the success of Asian teams on the world’s biggest stages, and by strengthening the level of fan engagement the AFC aims to make football the number one sport throughout the Continent.
