On January 12, 2023, the draw for Round 1 of the Asian qualifiers for the football event at the Olympic Games in Paris 2024 took held. The Indian women’s football team will begin qualifying for the Summer Olympics in Group G. Kyrgyzstan and Turkmenistan, both from Central Asia, will join the Indian women’s squad in the group. The competition will commence in April 2023. Round 2 of the qualifiers is expected to take place later in 2023, following the completion of Round 1. Apart from India, both countries are making their Olympic debuts in the women’s football event.

Since women’s football was added to the Olympic programme in 1996, Asia’s finest performances have come in the shape of silver medals won by China that year and Japan in 2012. Both of those clubs are among the top five seeds, who will be joined by the five Round One qualifiers for the next round.
