HÀ NỘI -- The second Việt Nam Super Cup for seven-a-side football (VSC-S2) will be held on December 16-18 at Hà Nội's Hoàng Mai District Stadium.
Eight clubs have advanced to the final round after four qualifications held in the last two months.
They will play in a knock-out format to crown a champion.
After a draw on December 13, FC Mobi (Hà Nội) will play Olympic Gym (Khánh Hòa); VIB Sài Gòn (HCM City) will meet Tư Lửa Cửa Tùng (Quảng Trị); Anh Quyên FC (Đà Nẵng) will face FC Bảy Núi (An Giang); and Đắk Lắk Lottery will take on FC Du Lịch (Lào Cai).
The four winners will advance to the semi-finals.
All matches will be live aired on VTVcab channels and platforms.
"Competitive matches in the qualifiers made for a great atmosphere in the host cities and provinces. The finals will be even better as the participants are the strongest teams," said Phạm Ngọc Tuấn, general diector of Vietfootball and head of the organising board.
He also revealed that an international seven-a-side event will be organised soon after the VSC-S2.
The best players from the VSC-S2 and those from the National Championship VPL-S3 will be core of TeamViệt Nam.
The three invited teams are from Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia.

"The strong development of seven-man football recently makes me strongly believe that it would be an official tournament in the national competition system," Ngọc said. "We hope that it will be named in the National Sports Games in 2026 like 11-man football, beach football and futsal." VNS
