The tournament will be held on February 14 to March 1 at the National Youth Football Training Centre and the Thanh Trì Stadium in Hà Nội.

Seven teams are divided into two groups. After a draw conducted on February 3, defending champions HCM City are in Group A with Việt Nam Coal and Minerals, Thái Nguyên T&T and Hà Nội II. Group B includes Hà Nội I, Phong Phú Hà Nam and Sơn La.

"2023 is a busy year for Việt Nam's women's football. The women's cup and U16 championship are the first events in the early months," said Dương Nghiệp Khôi, the Viet Nam Football Federation's General Secretary.

"Later on, the national team will be summoned for international events such as the 32nd SEA Games, the FIFA World Cup, the Asian Games and Olympics qualifications. Then, the national championship will be held by the end of the year. Clubs should stay focused on all activities, preparing their local and foreign players so that they will have high quality squads for tournaments," he said. VNS
