The VTV Binh Dien Cup is held every year in Vietnam. This year’s edition will be in Dong Nai province, 20km North East of Ho Chi Minh city.
Australia will be competing against six other teams including the three top Vietnamese club teams, Thong Tin LV Bank, VietsoPetro and VTV BD Long An. From China, Tianjin University and Jiangsu Jr. Lopburi from Thailand will also competing in a round robin format with the top four teams play off in the semi-finals.
We are flying over a few days early for a pre-tournament camp in Ho Chi Minh city. Here we will play a couple of practice matches against two of Vietnamese national league teams in Tan Binh and Vinh Long.
Please check back here every day for team news along with match reports and photos by our resident photographer Nam who has got a new Canon just in time for the tour.
Being sponsored by VTV (Vietnam Television), the matches are being televised live on national TV. We will endeavour to find out if they will also be shown live online.
