The 2014 AFC President's Cup was the 10th, and the last edition of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) for clubs from "emerging countries" in Asia.[1] Balkan were the defending champions, but failed to qualify for the tournament.

On 25 November 2013, the AFC Competitions Committee proposed that the 2014 AFC President's Cup to be the last edition of the competition.[2] Starting from 2015, league champions of "emerging countries" are eligible to participate in the AFC Cup qualifying play-off.[3]

In the final, HTTU Aşgabat of Turkmenistan defeated Rimyongsu of North Korea 2–1, and became the second consecutive team from Turkmenistan to win the AFC President's Cup.[4]

The AFC laid out the procedure for deciding the participating associations, with the final decision to be made by the AFC on 26 November 2013.[5] The following changes to the list of participating associations may be made from the 2013 AFC President's Cup if the AFC approves the following applications made by any association:

  • An association originally participating in the AFC President's Cup may apply to participate in the 2014 AFC Cup.
  • An association originally not participating in any AFC club competitions may apply to participate in the 2014 AFC President's Cup.

The following changes in the participating associations were made compared to the previous year:

  • Kyrgyzstan and Palestine clubs' participation were upgraded from the AFC President's Cup to the AFC Cup starting from 2014 by the AFC.[6]
  • Clubs from North Korea were approved to participate in the AFC President's Cup for the first time in 2014.[2]

Each participating association was given one entry. The following teams entered the competition.

Notes
  1. ^ Philippines (PHI): The PFF–Smart National Club Championship served as the qualifiers for the Philippines' club representative to the 2014 AFC President Cup, instead of the United Football League, which served this purpose for the 2013 AFC President's Cup. This means that Ceres, the 2013 PFF–Smart National Club Championship champions, instead of Stallion, the 2013 United Football League champions, were chosen to represent the Philippines in the 2014 AFC President Cup.[7]

The schedule of the competition was as follows.[8]
