From AFC website :
KUALA LUMPUR: Only days after the draw for the FIFA World Cup 2010 finals, a handful of Asian countries can already start preparing their qualifying campaigns for the 2014 competition.
The 2014 FIFA World Cup Asian qualifiers start on October 8, 2010 with Match Day 1 of the first round. MD2 is on October 12, 2010.
The AFC Competitions Department has yet to announce the qualification format for the 2014 finals, to be held in Brazil.
Comment : Very early start for the qualifiers. Philippines did not participate in 2010 qualifiers , but hopefully they will be playing in October 2010.
ASEAN qualifiers in Laos also scheduled for mid October , will probably be rescheduled before or after World Cup qualifiers.
