According to organisers, National Cup winners Hanoi FC will take on V.League 1 champions Viettel FC at the Hang Day stadium, with the tie expected to be a fitting curtain raiser ahead of the new season as both clubs possess high-quality footballers and a large number of supporters.
Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the game will be held with a limited crowd in an effort to curb the potential spread of the virus.
The total prize money on offer in the National Super Cup 2020 is up to VND500 million, including VND300 million which will be awarded to the winners.
The organisers of the fixture will give a prize of VND10 million to the first scorer, with a further prize of VND10 million on offer for the game’s best player.
The upcoming game marks the 21st year that the event has been held. Providing that they win the match, Viettel FC will win the competition for the first time in their history, while Hanoi FC will lift the trophy for the fourth time if they can defeat their local rivals. VOV
