The 2017 AFC U-19 Women's Championship was the 9th edition of the AFC U-19 Women's Championship, the biennial international youth football championship organised by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) for the women's under-19 national teams of Asia. The tournament was held in China for the third consecutive edition between 15–28 October 2017,[2] with a total of eight teams competing.
