Men's Football at the 2018 Asian Games

Men's football has been a part of the Asian Games sporting events since the 1951 edition. Women's football competition began in 1990.

Since the 2002 Asian Games, age limit for men teams is under-23 plus up to three over aged players for each squad,[1] same as the age limit in football competitions at the Summer Olympics. Although Kazakhstan is a member of the Olympic Council of Asia, the football team has been a member of the UEFA since 2002. The same rule applies to the Guam and Australia who are members of the AFC, but they are members of Oceania National Olympic Committees.
