The matches are against Malaysia on October 10, the UAE on November 14, Thailand on November 19 and Indonesia on June 4, 2020.

Vietnam Television is negotiating to buy the broadcast rights of the four matches played on away ground.

The national team was set to have just four days to prepare for their first match against arch-rival Thailand on September 5 because the V. League’s 23rd round ends on September 1.

 

As result, the Viet Nam Football Federation and the Viet Nam Professional Football Company which manages the tournament agreed on Wednesday to postpone the V. League matches to another day, giving players more time to rest and train.

The change means the league will wrap up later than planned and the time allotted for the U22 team to prepare for November’s SEA Games will be shortened.

Coach Park Hang-seo agreed with the new schedule shift.
