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.

The second edition of the VietFootball Cup 2019 is co-organised by the Viet Nam Football Federation, the Ha Noi Football Federation, and the Vietfootball Company.
