Football at the 2003 Afro-Asian Games was held in Hyderabad, India from 22 to 31 October 2003. The football preliminaries commenced two days before the Opening Ceremony of the Games.

The football tournament was a men's-only event. 8 teams were set to participate, but only 7 played. Uzbekistan were the gold medalists. The host country took silver, while Zimbabwe won bronze.

Original setting and withdrawals[edit]

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.

Venues[edit]

The football events were held in two stadiums - the GMC Balayogi Athletic Stadium, which was the main stadium of the Games; and the Lal Bahadur Shastri Stadium. The football finals were held in the latter stadium.
