The Shopee Cup, Southeast Asia’s first-ever official regional club competition to crown an ASEAN club champion annually, is driven by the passion for club football in one of the world’s largest consumer markets.

Fourteen leading clubs from 10 ASEAN countries will face off over eleven match days to claim the Shopee Cup title and to be crowned ASEAN’s club champions. The inaugural Shopee Cup season kicks-off this year on 17 July and runs through to 21 May 2025. 


The tournament will be played in a league format with qualifying round play-offs and a group stage, featuring 14 of ASEAN’s leading clubs in all, competing in 40 matches.

The group stage features 12 teams which will be drawn into two groups, with clubs from the same country kept apart, in an Official Draw on May 9th. The 30 Shopee Cup group stage matches will be played in a single round-robin home-or-away format in August, September, January and February. The top two finishers in each group meet in cross-over semi-finals in two-legged home and away semi-finals on April 2 and 30, and culminating in the showpiece Shopee Cup finals to be played on May 14 and 21 next year.

One team each from Brunei, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar will play off over two legs on July 17 and 24 for two berths in the group phase, where they will join ten clubs from Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines.


The Shopee Cup will feature National League Champions and designated Cup winners (or runners-up in certain instances) respectively of Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam (two teams each), and Philippines and Singapore (one team each). The National League Champions of Brunei, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar will compete for two places in the group stage of the Shopee Cup in the qualifying round play-offs.
