The qualifying play-off of the 2014 AFC Champions League was played from 29 January to 15 February 2014, to decide four of the 32 places in the group stage.[1][2]

Format[edit]

The bracket for the qualifying play-off was determined by the AFC based on the association ranking of each team, with teams from the higher-ranked associations entering at later rounds.[2] Teams from the same association may not play each other in the qualifying play-off.[3] Each tie was played as a single match, with the team from the higher-ranked association hosting the match. Extra time and penalty shoot-out were used to decide the winner if necessary. The winners of each tie in round 3 advanced to the group stage to join the 28 automatic qualifiers. All losers of each round from associations with only play-off slots entered the AFC Cup group stage.[1]

Teams[edit]

The following 19 teams (11 from West Asia Zone, 8 from East Asia Zone) were entered into the qualifying play-off:
