THÁI NGUYÊN — Thái Nguyên T&T Club have finished the first leg of the National Women's Football Championship in third place, with 14 points.

Thái Nguyên is only five points behind the top team of HCM City 1 and only two points behind the second-ranked team of Hà Nội. At the end of the first leg, Thái Nguyên has only lost one match, against HCM City 1, so there is plenty of opportunity for Thái Nguyên to chase their opponents for the title in the second leg.

At this time last year the team was ranked fifth with only nine points and had lost four matches and scored 13 goals after the end of the first leg.

The 2024 season witnessed a drastic change in Thái Nguyên's performance. In the opening match, they had an easy 4-0 victory over HCM City 2. The significant 'transformation' of the team, over just one season, was due to new contracts with footballers Trần Thị Kim Thanh, Nguyễn Thị Bích Thùy and Trần Thị Thu.

The experienced players have passed on their experiences to the younger players, helping the team become a new force in the 2024 season, competing on a level with big competitors such as HCM City 1, Hà Nội 1 and Phong Phú Hà Nam.

To encourage the Thái Nguyên team, Đỗ Vinh Quang, Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of T&T Group, decided to reward the team VNĐ100 million (US$4,000). VNS
