The positions of the countries were decided while keeping in account the performance of the national team and clubs (at AFC competitions) in the previous four years.

The performance of the national team was based on the recent FIFA ranking points, which carried a weightage of 30% in the calculation, while the performance of the clubs of a particular country carried 70% weightage. The calculation was done based on the four latest Asian Champions League or AFC Cup seasons.
