HA NOI — Hosts Tay Ninh will play Hoang Anh Gia Lai in a Group A opener of the National U15 Football Championship.

The draw for the tournament to be held in Tay Ninh Province was held in Ha Noi yesterday.

The tournament, known as the Thai Son Bac Cup, will field eight teams who qualified in April.

The teams, divided into two groups, will compete in a round robin format from August 2. Two top teams from each group will advance to the semi-final round. The winners will walk away with VND50 million (US$2,200) after the final on August 12.

It is the second year in a row that the Thai Son Bac Electric Equipment Trading Company is sponsoring the tournament.

Bui Dinh Te, Thai Son Bac director, said the sponsorship was part of the company’s support for youth football in the country. He said he believed it would help strengthen and develop the game in the country, especially after the recent success of the U20 team. — VNS
