HÀ NỘI — An international men’s volleyball tournament will be held in Hà Nam Province on May 25-31 while the Asian U19 women’s volleyball tournament will follow a month later in Bắc Ninh Province, the Việt Nam Volleyball Federation has announced.
Six teams from China, Kazakhstan, Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand and Việt Nam will compete in the men’s tournament. They will vie for the top position to get a bonus of US$15,000.
The women’s event, the LienVietPostBank Cup, from June 10-17 will see 16 teams from around the continent.
"Vietnamese teams have little chance to compete in international events organised on home turf which could improve their ability. We have tried our best to call on sponsorships to bring such competitions home. It is not only for the team but also to meet the demands of local supporters," said Trần Đức Phấn, the federation’s vice president. — VNS
