Da Nang's People's Committee has awarded VND1 billion (US$48,000) to SHB Da Nang for winning Viet Nam's top-flight football league this year.
Secretary of Da Nang City's Party Committee Nguyen Ba Thanh said he hoped the team would retain the title next season, and committed to increasing the prize money if they did.
As part of the post-season awards, 28 press agencies are voting for the best football fan club. Official fan clubs are required to have a management board, close links with their teams, and follow the laws and regulations of professional football.
Voting will close on Saturday. — VNS
