Asian Women's Championship


Note: the tournaments held between 1975 and 1983 (inclusive) were organized by the ALFC
      (Asian Ladies' Football Confederation), a body which operated separately from the
      (men's) governing bodies AFC and FIFA.  On several occasions during this period the
      ALFC attempted to become affiliated to FIFA and the AFC, but was effectively refused.
      Indeed, FIFA and the AFC refused to sanction or recognise these tournaments, causing
      great difficulty for the organisers, particularly in 1983.

1980

Played January 15-21, 1980 at the Corporation Stadium in Kozhikode (Calicut).
Matches were 60 minutes in duration.

Note: in the original fixture list, the two Indian teams were labelled "India A" and
      "India B". Subsequently, they were relabelled "India S" and "India N" respectively.
      It is unconfirmed precisely what "S" and "N" stood for, but a likely possibility is
      "Seniors" and "Novices".  An alternative possibility is "South" and "North".

      Association, which was founded in October 1980 in Baguio City.

1983

Played in Bangkok (National Stadium).

NB: Indonesia, Japan and Taiwan did not participate, due to pressure from FIFA and the AFC in relation to the
    fact that the ALFC (Asian Ladies' Football Confederation) was not affiliated to FIFA, and similarly
    the women's associations of the other competing countries were not affiliated to the national (men's)
    football associations of those countries.  FIFA and the AFC had decided not to sanction or recognise the
    tournament in Bangkok for this reason, and asked their affiliates not to take part.
