AFC Cup, Champions by Year
Information about the international football tournament AFC Cup including champions by year, logos, links, results and other data.
The format of the AFC Cup is the same as that for the AFC Champions League. Each country sends two teams representing the domestic league winners and the cup winners. The participating teams are split into seven groups of three or four (depending on the actual number of participating teams in each group), with each team playing the others in the group in a round robin format. The winners of each group enter into the quarter finals along with the defending champions. The quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals are played as a knockout competition.
