HA NOI (VNS) — The National U17 Football Championship will be organised in Hue City with the participation of eight teams, running from July 16-25.
Defending champions SHB Da Nang and host Thua Thien-Hue automatically receive their berths to the final round, while six others had to be awarded their slots through a tough two-week qualification, which ended on Monday.
Teams are divided into two groups, competing in the round-robin format in the first round.
Two successful candidates from each group will advance to the semi-finals.
PVF, who won all four matches in the qualifier, scoring 20 goals, have been the top title favourite this season.
Last year, PVF came in second after losing to Da Nang in the final match. — VNS
