HÀ NỘI — V.League 2018 will begin at Tam Kỳ Stadium on March 10, with a match between defending champions Quảng Nam FC and Sài Gòn FC.
At the same time, Hoàng Anh Gia Lai FC, who will present their youngest-ever squad, will face three-times winner Becamex Bình Dương in Pleiku.
Other teams will play the next day.
The first leg of the tournament will have 13 rounds from March 10 to June 13.
Clubs will have a month-long break before returning to action. The tournament will end on September 29.
Organisers have set the time of the matches at 5pm, 6pm and 7pm to lure more spectators to the stadiums as well as attract viewers on television.
Last year, Quảng Nam played remarkably well to defeat title favourites such as FLC Thanh Hóa and Hà Nội FC to take home the trophy for the first time. — VNS
