The central city of Da Nang will host the final round of the futsal tournament – the Larue Cup, at the Eastern Bank Stadium on June 29-30.

Sixteen teams that qualified from provincial and city qualifying rounds will compete in a knock-out final round for the trophy and a cash-prize of VND100 million (US$4,800).

The runners-up place is worth VND50 million ($2,400), while the third-placed team will get VND30 million ($1,400).

The Larue Cup, which held its first competition in 2008, is the biggest amateur futsal tournament in Viet Nam.

"The cup is also an opportunity for scouts and coaches from the national teams who are searching for young talent in amateur tournaments like this," said the head of the organising committee, Nguyen Phuc Linh.

"The tournament brings us an exciting football festival, with all the skilful players taking part."

Linh said that the Kim Toan Team from HCM City would unveil their all-student squad of stars in the final round.

Nguyen Van Hoang Lam, the tournaments sponsor, said the organising committee had handed out a total of VND1 billion ($48,000) amongst all the participating teams

The qualifying rounds involved 5,000 players from 700 teams competing in 16 provinces and cities nationwide over the last two months.

Last year, Vietnam Airlines took the crown. — VNS
