Invitational U-19 football competition to kick off Friday in Vietnam

Invitational U-19 football competition to kick off Friday in Vietnam

Wednesday, September 03, 2014, 13:08 GMT+7

Hanoi will host the 2014 Nutifood Cup from September 5 to 13, with the participation of six under-19 football teams that are training for the final round of the 2014 Asian U-19 Football Championship, taking place next month in Myanmar.

In the Vietnamese capital city, the six teams are to be divided into two groups, with hosts Vietnam in Group B, along with Japan and Australia. The three remaining teams, Myanmar, Indonesia, and Thailand, are in Group A.

Spectators can buy tickets at My Dinh and Hang Day stadiums, as well as at 59 Hoang Cau Street in Hanoi.

Tickets are available at three prices: VND40,000 (US$1.90), VND70,000 ($3.30), and VND100,000 ($4.80).

The Vietnamese national U-19 football team has recently attracted great interest from fans thanks to spectacular performances. The team won a silver medal at the Hassanal Bolkiah Cup in Brunei last month.

The U-19 players have also secured a spot at the 2014 Asian U-19 Football Championship next month.

Vietnam will compete in Group C with Japan, South Korea, and China, with 16 teams in total taking part.

The Vietnamese side hopes to top its group at the tournament to automatically grab one of four direct tickets to the final round of the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2015, to be held from May 30 to June 20 in New Zealand.
