Initially, 8 teams were set to participate in the football events - India, Uzbekistan, Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Iran, Malaysia, Cameroon and Burkina Faso. However, Cameroon withdrew, and Ghana was decided to replace Cameroon.
Just before the preliminaries were to begin, Ghana pulled out of the football events, leaving only 7 teams participating.
