The 2017 AFC Futsal Club Championship was the 8th edition of the AFC Futsal Club Championship, an annual international futsal club tournament in Asia organised by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC). It was held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam from 20 to 30 July 2017.[1]

The tournament was won by Chonburi Bluewave from Thailand after defeating Giti Pasand Isfahan from Iran 3–2 in the final. The win was Chonburi Bluewave's second Asian title, following after they won the 2013 AFC Futsal Club Championship four years ago.

Nagoya Oceans from Japan were the defending champions, but they failed to qualify from the 2016–17 season of Japanese futsal league following their loss to Shriker Osaka for the Japanese champions.

Qualified teams[edit]

A total of 14 teams from the 14 of the 47 AFC member associations entered the tournament, which included first-time entrants from Tajikistan. Kyrgyzstan returned after a one-year absence, while Indonesia entered a team for the first time since 2011. From the associations participating in 2016, only Chinese Taipei did not enter the tournament.

For teams entering the tournament, they were assigned a seeding position according to their 2016 AFC Futsal Club Championship ranking for the respective draw and the hosts associations.
