HÀ NỘI – Bà Rịa Vũng Tàu will play PVF-Hà Nội Police in the opening match of the National U15 Football Championship on August 10 in Vũng Tàu City.
On August 4 in Hà Nội, the Việt Nam Football Federation (VFF) conducted a draw for the tournament, which will see 12 teams compete in the finals.
Teams which took part in qualifications last month are divided into three groups of four. They will compete in a round robin format with the two best from each group and two best second-placed teams advancing to the quarter-finals.
The gold-medal match will be held on August 23.
VFF General Secretary Dương Nghiệp Khôi said: “Recently, the national youth football has strongly developed. Việt Nam teams have earned remarkable results in the Southeast Asia and Asia. Young players have contributed their parts in the national team.
“These results are mainly from the clubs’ focus on scouting and training youth football activities. I believe that such a tournament for the youngsters will help them to sharpen their skills, gain more experience and strengthen their competitive mind for their future careers.”
