Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Laos FC defaults match for failure to comply with mandatory team requirements. Forza FC automatically wins 3-0 and gains three points.[8]
  2. ^ Green Archers United awarded a 3-0 win against Global FC. Global fielded too many foreigners in the 18 man roster. The original score was 2–1 in favor of Global.[9] The foreign players fielded by Global were Izo Elhabib, and Hikaru Minegishi as starters and Sean Bateau, Serge Kaole, Koffi Kouassi, and Milan Nikolic as bench players.[3]
