The 2014 AFC Women's Asian Cup, the 18th edition of the competition, was a women's association football tournament competed by national teams in Asian Football Confederation (AFC). It served as the qualification for the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup.[2] It was played from 14 to 25 May 2014 in Vietnam.[3]

Reigning world champions Japan defeated the reigning Asian champions Australia 1-0 in the final to secure their first continental title.[4]

Qualification

The final tournament was competed by eight teams, four of which were automatically qualified though their 2010 placement, while the others were determined via a qualification tournament.[5]

North Korea was banned from the tournament due to the sanction on their doping cases in 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup.[2] Hosts Vietnam had to play the qualifying round; in case of a non-qualification, another host would have been chosen.
