Under-19 World Cup qualification historyEdit

ACC Under-19 Elite CupEdit

One of the major roles of the ACC Under-19 Elite Cup has been to provide member nations of the ACC with the chance to qualify for the Under-19 World Cup. It was originally known as the Youth Asia Cup and, for the first two tournaments, two teams qualified directly.[1][2] During these years, teams from the EAP region took part as did Bangladesh who did not receive full member status until 2000.[3]

After Bangladesh and the EAP sides left the competition the number of qualifying teams was reduced to one and remained this way until the 2007 competition.[4] Following this tournament, the ACC decided to split the teams into two divisions after the model of the men's ACC Trophy. The top division, the Elite Cup, continues to be held in two-year intervals from the initial tournament. The lower division, the Challenge Cup, generally takes place in the year between Elite tournaments although the most recent edition took place in 2013 in Thailand. The winners of this tournament were Singapore.[5]
