Indian football clubs have entered Asian association football competitions (AFC Champions League and AFC Cup) since the 1900s. The Asian Champion Club Tournament started in 1967, but there was no India representative during that inaugural season. Indian teams have participated every year in Asia, except for the early years between the 1990s and early 2000s.
