Men's tournament

The draw for the men's football event was held on 5 July 2018 initially with involving 24 teams. The teams seeded into four pots with six teams each classified in those pots. However the initial draw was scratched due to the omission of both UAE and Palestine due to the by mistakes of the game organisers.[6][7] It was early proved that both of the football associations of Palestine and United Arab Emirates correctly submitted their participation form on time before the deadline.[8] Due to these errors, the tournament's draw result was rescheduled and reconfirmed on 25 July 2018 with Palestine added to the Group A alongside hosts Indonesia and UAE was added to Group E.[9][10][11]

However another redraw was held again for the men's football team event on 3 August 2018 due to the sudden withdrawal of Iraq national football team and it was decided to move either UAE or Palestine to Group C.[12][13][14]
