In addition to hosts Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Palestine, Guam and Nepal are also taking part in the tournament by invitation.

Nour Youssef could face team-mate Sarah Abu Sabbah in the clash for the West Asian Championship. Top scorer Abu Sabbah has been called up to the Jordanian national team squad.
