Allocation of entries per association

The following allocation of berths for the 2012 AFC Cup was approved by the AFC in November 2011.[2][3] The four associations (Yemen, Malaysia, Maldives, Myanmar) with the lowest points according to the AFC evaluation system have one team entering the group stage and one team entering the play-off.[2]

Notes
  • A Different from previous seasons where losers of the AFC Champions League qualifying play-off semi-final round also entered the AFC Cup, from 2012 only losers of the AFC Champions League qualifying play-off final round entered the AFC Cup.[2]
  • B Kuwait have three teams entering as Al-Kuwait, the 2011 AFC Cup runners-up failed to fulfil the criteria set by AFC to compete in the 2012 AFC Champions League, and thus directly entered the 2012 AFC Cup.[2]
  • C Bahrain, while eligible to enter the AFC Cup, chose not to participate in 2012.[2]
  • D Indonesia only have one team entering as their league champion entered the 2012 AFC Champions League qualifying play-off.[2]
  • E Malaysia returned to the competition, after not participating in 2011.[4]
  • F Myanmar applied for upgrade from the AFC President's Cup to the AFC Cup,[5] and was approved by the AFC in November 2011,[2] and made their debut in the competition.[3]
  • G After the withdrawal of Liaoning Whowin and disqualification of Persipura Jayapura from the 2012 AFC Champions League qualifying play-off East Asia Zone, only three teams were left, meaning only one final round loser would enter the AFC Cup in the East Asia Zone instead of two. As a result, no qualifying play-off was necessary for the East Asia Zone and both the second representatives from Malaysia (Terengganu) and Myanmar (Ayeyawady United), which were originally slated to enter the AFC Cup qualifying play-off, automatically advanced to the group stage. Persipura Jayapura were later provisionally reinstated to the 2012 AFC Champions League, but the AFC decided that the loser of the qualifying play-off match between Adelaide United and Persipura Jayapura would not advance to the 2012 AFC Cup group stage.[6]

Qualified teams

A total of 33 teams participated in the 2012 AFC Cup, including 3 teams which joined as 2012 AFC Champions League qualifying play-off final round losers:[2]

  • 31 teams (19 in West Asia Zone, 12 in East Asia Zone) directly entered the group stage.
  • 2 teams (both in West Asia Zone) competed in the qualifying play-off. The winners qualified for the group stage.
