The tournament - jointly held by the VFF and Binh Minh Media, and sponsored by the Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications Group (VNPT) - will draw four Asian teams from Vietnam, Uzbekistan, Oman, and Palestine.


The teams will compete in one round for the calculation of points. The winner will receive USD20,000 in cash, while the runner-up will get USD10,000, and third place presented with USD5,000.

VFF Secretary General Le Hoai Anh said that the tournament is a preparation step for the Vietnamese U23 team ahead of the ASIAD 18 in Indonesia. He revealed that the majority of the team are players joining the recent Asian Football Federation (AFF) U23 Championship.

This will be the first time the VNPT coordinates with the VFF in organising an international football event.
