People's Republic of China and Philippines finished in the top four in the 2019 Women's Baseball Asian Cup to qualify for the first time ( Chinese Taipei and Japan also placed in the top four). Mexico, United States, Canada and Venezuela qualified for their performance in the 2019 Women's Pan-Am Baseball Championship; Mexico was debuting. Getting wild card invites were Netherlands and Cuba while Australia was the Oceanic representative. Originally scheduled for August and September, it was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
