The event belongs to the VietFootball’s movement match system, which includes premier leagues as well as first- and second-class tournaments.
The event will attract the participation of 10 teams including Cuong Quoc, Hiep Hoa, Mobi, UCE Le Duong and Viet Phuong Dong.
Teams will compete in a round robin format during 10 weeks. The two top-performing squads will be promoted to the premier league, while the two worst-ranked teams will move to a second-class tournament next season.
“Besides professional football system, developing amateur football is one of the important tasks in the strategy to develop Viet Nam football because amateur football is a solid foundation for elite football to improve. The Viet Nam Football Federation (VFF) highly appreciates Vietfootball’s tournaments,” said Can Van Nghia, deputy chairman of the VFF.
