Initially, scheduled from 17 to 26 December 2018 in Sri Lanka, the competition was rescheduled, as Sri Lanka withdrew as hosts. Afterwards, it was scheduled to be held in 2019 from 12–22 March and will be hosted by Nepal.
Defending champions India and Bangladesh were pitted in group B and group A respectively. In Group A, Nepal who finished second in the first three editions of the tournament were drawn with 2016 runners-up Bangladesh, Bhutan and Pakistan and in Group B, along with India, Maldives and Sri Lanka are placed. Afghanistan will not be playing in SAFF championships from this edition though they played in the 2016 edition even after changing their sub-confederation from SAFF to CAFF in 2014.
