EAFF E-1 Football Championship

Short History

     EAFF E-1 Football Championship is an international football competition in East Asia for member nations of the EAFF. Before the EAFF was founded in 2002, the Dynasty Cup was held between the East Asian top four teams, and was regarded as the predecessor of this competition. After the EAFF was formed, the East Asian Football Championship replaced this tournament, first held in 2003. In 2012, competition was renamed to the East Asian Cup, in 2015, to the E-1 Football Championship. In the tournament China, South Korea and Japan automatically enter the competition, while other participants have to go through a qualifying round. The competition between women's teams has been held alongside men's since 2005.
