The 2013 AFC President's Cup was the 9th edition of the AFC President's Cup, a football competition organized by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) for clubs from "emerging countries" in Asia.[1] Istiqlol were the defending champions, but did not enter the tournament as teams from Tajikistan no longer entered the AFC President's Cup.

In the final, Balkan of Turkmenistan defeated KRL of Pakistan 1–0, and became the first team from Turkmenistan to win the AFC President's Cup.[2]

The AFC laid out the procedure for deciding the participating associations, with the final decision to be made by the AFC in November 2012.[3] The following changes to the list of participating associations may be made from the 2012 AFC President's Cup if the AFC approved the following applications made by any association:

  • An association originally participating in the AFC President's Cup may apply to participate in the 2013 AFC Cup.
  • An association originally not participating in any AFC club competitions may apply to participate in the 2013 AFC President's Cup.

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

  • Philippine clubs' participation in the AFC President's Cup starting from 2013 was approved by the AFC.[4]
  • Tajikistan clubs' participation was upgraded from the AFC President's Cup to the AFC Cup starting from 2013 by the AFC.[5]

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