Hanoi (VNA) – The Bamboo Airways National Football Cup 2020 is set to begin on May 24, the Vietnam Professional Football Joint Stock Company (VPF) announced on May 6.

Following the qualifying matches, the tournament’s quarter-finals will take place a week later.

The VPF has yet to decide on a date for the resumption of the LS V.League 1 and the V.League 2 season.

At present, there have been two rounds played in the LS V-League 2020 with future games cancelled on March 4 as a result of fears surrounding the novel coronavirus.

With the V.League 2 season supposed to start on March 14, the competition has been delayed indefinitely.

When football in the country can resume, the VPF will base their decisions on both the current COVID-19 situation and various government policies.

Moreover, local football teams are being urged to ramp up preparations for the restart of the tournament, an event which will certainly see added preventive measures taken upon its return to curb the spread of the virus./.
