Vision Vietnam's Long An local league launched

Asian Football Confederation General Secretary Dato’ Paul Mony Samuel has congratulated the Vietnam Football Federation-affiliated Long An Football Association and the participating clubs on the launch of the Long An Provincial League. The 13-team one round league, an outcome of the Vision Vietnam program, kicked off with a match between Vinh Hung and Duc Hoa at the Vinh Hung Stadium.

“Provincial League is the clubs’ foundation. Nowadays, more and more clubs in the world are concentrating on the grassroots and youth development project. Gone are the days when you spend millions to buy players. Clubs are the cornerstone of any competition and the cradle for developing the next generation of players. And at the same time, a well organised Provincial League can assure the success and future of clubs," he said.
