EAFF East Asian Cup, formerly known as the East Asian Football Championship, is an international football competition for member nations of the East Asian Football Federation (EAFF). Before the EAFF was founded in 2002, the Dynasty Cup was held between the East Asian top four teams, and was regarded as the unofficial East Asian Championship. There is a separate competition for both men (first held in 2003) and women (first held in 2005). There was also a combined points competition in 2005, where the results of the men's and women's teams are added together (not including qualifiers).

History

The Dynasty Cup is a defunct international association football competition that is regarded as the predecessor to East Asian Football Championship. It was held four times from 1990 to 1998. The purpose of the competition was to improve the quality of football in the East Asia and the national teams in the area participated in the tournament. After the East Asian Football Federation was formed in 2002, the East Asian Football Championship replaced this tournament.

In the men's tournament China, South Korea and Japan have the right to automatically enter the competition, while other participants have to go through a qualifying round. Other participants that take part are Chinese Taipei, North Korea, Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Hong Kong, Mongolia, and Macau. Australia, being a non-member, was invited to take part in the 2013 tournament.[1]
