2023 Asian Games: Group stage draw made for India men’s and women’s team

The draw for the group stage of the 2023 Asian Games has been made, with India’s men’s and women’s teams learning about their opponents in the first round. The tournament will be held in China between September 18 – October 7, 2023.

Both Indian teams were originally not allowed to participate due to their low ranking among other Asian teams. But, the decision was overturned after mass protests and requests from players, coaches and fans. Now, the group stage draw has been made for both sets of players.
