The announcement was made by the Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) following a meeting in Hanoi on May 13.
In light of the long pause which has interrupted the current season, the remainder of the LS V.League 1’s schedule will see the league split into two after 13 series of matches are played. Eight leading teams will then compete in a play-off system for the championship title, while the bottom six will compete to decide which one is relegated to the V.League 2.
The tournament will ultimately conclude on October 31.
In addition, the 2020 season of the Vietnamese National Football First League, the V.League 2, is set to resume on June 6 and will then be wrapped up on September 26.
Teams will play in a total of 11 rounds of matches, with the top six teams then splitting off to compete in a play-off system for a place in next year’s V.League 1.
The National Cup 2020 is scheduled to be held from May 23 to October 31, with competitors to play a total of 25 clashes across five rounds, with a play-off match to get underway on September 30 if necessary.
Le Hoai Anh, general secretary of the VFF, stated that the latest plan aims to finish all of the country’s footballing competitions by October 31, so as to give the national squad plenty of time for training in the lead up to upcoming regional and international tournaments.
