The Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) said on March 10 that it has decided to make adjustments to the schedule of professional and non-professional football tournaments in 2020 due to the complicated developments of the COVID-19 epidemic.

Accordingly, several tournaments initially scheduled to take place in March, including the National U15 Championship, the National Women's U19 Championship, and the National Futsal HDBank Championship, will be postponed until more appropriate time.

Meanwhile, the V.League 1, V.League 2, the National Cup, and the National U19 Football Championship, will still take place as scheduled.

However, the tournaments’ organisers and host localities are required to implement strict measures to minimise the number of football supporters at matches, as well as to follow the disease prevention instructions from the Health Ministry.

In addition, a friendly match between the national teams of Vietnam and Kyrgyzstan, slated for March 26 in southern Binh Duong province, will also be postponed, the federation said.
