The 2016 AFC U-19 Championship will be the 39th edition of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) for the men's under-19 national teams of Asia. The tournament will be held in Bahrain, as announced by the AFC on 3 June 2015,[1][2] and is scheduled to be played between 13–30 October 2016.[3] A total of 16 teams will play in the tournament.

Same as previous editions, the tournament acts as the AFC qualifiers for the FIFA U-20 World Cup. The top four teams of the tournament will qualify for the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup in South Korea as the AFC representatives, besides South Korea who qualified automatically as hosts. If South Korea are among the top four teams, the fifth-placed team (i.e., the losing quarter-finalist with the best record in the tournament) will also qualify for the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup.
