According to General Secretary of the Vietnam Football Federation Le Hoai Anh, he was informed of the news in an exchange with the UAE Football Association's General Secretary on June 13.

Fans are requested to strictly implement COVID-19 prevention and control measures.

They must be vaccinated and carry a negative report from their RT-PCR tests, which must be done no more than 48 hours before entry to the stadium. In addition, audiences aged below 16 will not be allowed.

All fans will have their temperatures checked before entry and must keep a distance from one another in the stands and wear face masks during the match, according to the Vietnam News Agency.

The Vietnam-UAE game is considered the "final" match of Group G. Vietnam currently has 17 points, two more than the host UAE. The team will enter the third stage as the leader of group G if they do not lose to the UAE on June 15. If Vietnam lose to the UAE, they still have a big opportunity to continue in the group as top five runners-up./.
