Notably, the organisers have set up the first-ever fan page for the tournament to keep supporters update on the schedule and provide a platform to post memorable photos, clips, and results via Facebook.
The tournament, which will end on July 19, is to seek young talents for the country who can compete in international tournaments, including the 31st Southeast Asian (SEA) Games 2021 held in Vietnam. – VNS
