FIFA has decided to provide the Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) with 500,000 USD for training new under-15 talents following the success of the Goal Project in Vietnam, according to VFF Chairman Nguyen Trong Hy.

A total of 100 young players will be selected to attend a two-2 year training course. If at least 35 graduates of the course meet FIFA standards, the organisation will dole out more funding for the VFF to expand the training model.

The Goal Project was an initiative of FIFA President S.Balter, which allowed member associations to receive funding for football development projects that respond to the specific need of each nation.

In the first phase of the GOAL project, the VFF received funding from FIFA to build its heaquarters in Hanoi. In the second phase, FIFA provided 400,000 USD to Vietnam to build a training centre for young footballers.-VNA
