Original setting and withdrawals
Initially, eight teams were set to participate in the football events - India, Uzbekistan, Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Iran, Malaysia, Cameroon and Burkina Faso. However, Cameroon withdrew, and Ghana was decided to replace Cameroon.
Just before the preliminaries were to begin, Ghana pulled out of the football events, leaving only seven teams participating.
The football events were held in two stadiums - the GMC Balayogi Athletic Stadium, which was the main stadium of the Games; and the Lal Bahadur Shastri Stadium. The football finals were held in the latter stadium.
Iran were represented by club side Malavan Bandar Anzali Football Club. Cameroon were replaced by Zimbabwe.
