HÀ NỘI — HCM City FC were promoted to the V.League next season following their 0-0 draw in the 15th round of the First Division match on Saturday in Hà Nội.
HCM City scored 36 points to ensure a berth in the national premier tournament, although there are three rounds remaining.
“It is due to our great effort during this hard season, although we cannot deny that we sometimes had luck,” said coach Lư Đình Tuấn.
“V.League is a much more difficult tournament, as all we have known. We need more support from the city’s fans to help us overcome challenges,” noted Tuấn.
In the next round, HCM City will host Đồng Nai at home on August 6. — VNS
