The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) said the draw to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia has been postponed until further notice.

"Taking into consideration the current challenges and logistical arrangements, the AFC agreed the postponement of the draw was necessary due to rising COVID-19 cases in the host nation as well as across the continent keeping in mind the wellbeing and safety of all teams, players, officials and relevant stakeholders," the AFC said.

"More details on the new arrangements for the draw for Asia's flagship women's tournament will be announced in due course," it added in the statement.

In January, the AFC had announced that the (main) tournament would take place between January 20 and February 6 next year.

However, the draw for the qualifying matches of both the 2022 AFC U-20 Women's Asian Cup in Uzbekistan and the 2022 AFC U-17 Women's Asian Cup in Indonesia will proceed as planned on May 27.
