Asia Group – “A” fixtures

A little over a week after Asia’s third qualifying round came to a close, the ten qualified teams learned the obstacles they have to overcome to seal one of the continent’s four automatic spots at the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ when the final-round draw took place at AFC House on Friday 9 March.

The ten teams were divided into two groups of five, who will battle against each in a lengthy competition which runs for a whole year between 3 June 2012 and 18 June 2013.

The top two finishers of each section will progress automatically to represent Asia at Brazil 2014, while the two third-placed sides will meet in a two-legged play-off on 6 and 10 September 2013 respectively, with the winners facing the fifth-placed side from South America in a two-legged play-off for a place at the finals.
