Since 2002, the Asian Games men’s football competition has primarily consisted of under-23 players. However, teams have the flexibility to include a maximum of three players aged above 23 in their squad.
In the group stage, each team plays against the others in their group. The top two teams from each group advance directly to the knockout stage, starting with the round of 16. Additionally, the best third-placed teams also advance to the round of 16, which begins on September 28.
