Print

The FA Cup will tour Vietnam next month following an agreement signed on January 29 between the English Football Association (FA) and the Vietnam Football Federation.

The exhibit will tour Hanoi , Da Nang , HCM City and Can Tho.

A report by the FA shows that the 140-year-old competition, the oldest domestic football competition in the world, is broadcast in 160 nations and territories across the world, attracting over 1.4 billion spectators.

The FA Cup was first held in 1871-72. It involves clubs of all standards playing against each other, including “minnows” from lower divisions and giants from the English Premier League.

The holders of the FA Cup are Chelsea, who beat Portsmouth in the 2010 final to complete an FA Cup and League double.

The tour is sponsored by Big Cola./.
