Organised by the HCM City Basketball Federation and Nestlé Milo, the tournament will run until July 25.

Huynh Trong Khai, the federation’s chairman, said the tournament has seen an increase in terms of quality and number of participating teams over the years, helping nurture talent.

The tournament is in its 25th year, with Nestlé being involved for 15.

Another tournament, the final round of the 2019-2020 School Football Festival, will be played at Phu Nhuan football stadium from July 6 to 11 with 180 teams from 120 primary and secondary schools taking part.

The teams came through a six-month qualifying round.

Doan Manh Xuong of the HCM City Football Federation said “Although there was a disruption in the tournament this year, we have still received enthusiastic participation of students and schools.”

The tournaments are among the major events under the ‘Active Vietnam’ programme instituted by Nestlé Milo to encourage an active lifestyle and physical activity in the community, especially among children.

 

Tournament

Meanwhile in Hanoi, the Hanoi Basketball Federation (HBF) recently announced it will hold a 3vs3 basketball tournament on July 18 at Ly Thai To Flower Garden by Hoan Kiem Lake.

According to Dao Van Kien, general secretary of HBF, the tournament will take place from 1pm to 10pm with 16 teams including 12 male teams and four female teams.

The tournament will feature four top male basketball teams including the VBA’s Thang Long Warriors and Hanoi Buffaloes, as well as Hanoi basketball club and the basketball club of the air force. The remaining male teams will be semi-professional teams.

To boost the quality of the tournament, each team can register one heritage or foreign athlete living, studying and working in Vietnam

The tournament is the first move of HBF to hold top tournaments for the basketball community in Hanoi.

With the new VBA season postponed until the end of this year last week due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 3x3 tournament will be a chance for some of the capital’s thousands of basketball fans to get their fix of hoops for now.  VNS
