HÀ NỘI — The Vietfootball Cup 2019, the non-professional first-class football tournament, is scheduled to be held from June 9 to August 11 in Hà Nội.
The event belongs to the VietFootball’s movement match system, which includes premier leagues as well as first- and second-class tournaments.
The event will attract the participation of 10 teams including Cường Quốc, Hiệp Hoà, Mobi, UCE Lê Dương and Việt Phương Đông.
Teams will compete in a round robin format during 10 weeks. The two top-performing squads will be promoted to the premier league, while the two worst-ranked teams will move to a second-class tournament next season.
“Besides professional football system, developing amateur football is one of the important tasks in the strategy to develop Việt Nam football because amateur football is a solid foundation for elite football to improve. The Việt Nam Football Federation (VFF) highly appreciates Vietfootball’s tournaments,” said Cấn Văn Nghĩa, deputy chairman of the VFF.
