Tournament hosts and defending champions Qatar are the top-seeded team in Group A with their title defense to begin against two-time runners-up China PR, Tajikistan and Lebanon.

Group B will see 2015 champions Australia, Uzbekistan, Syria and India contesting for the knockout stage spots.

Three-time winners Iran, 1996 runners-up United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong, China and Palestine will vie for the knockout stage spots in Group C while record four-time winners Japan, Indonesia, 2007 champions Iraq and Vietnam were drawn in Group D.

Twice champions Korea Republic, the top-seeded team in Group E, will have Malaysia, Jordan and Bahrain to contend with.
