|Head coach Chung Hae-soung (C) is joined by assistant Lu Dinh Tuan (L) as the pair represent Ho Chi Minh City FC in delivering a hefty donation to the Vietnam Fatherland Front.
The total sum of money donated had largely been contributed by the club’s footballers.
The move comes after football star Cong Phuong and his teammates agreed to reduce their salary during the temporary suspension of the V.League 1 season.
At present, there have been no plans made by the organising board to rearrange the tournament due to the complicated nature of developments caused by the ongoing epidemic.
Along with the donation made by Ho Chi Minh City FC, V.League 1 champions Hanoi FC have offered VND1 billion to the National Hospital for Tropical Diseases, in addition to a further VND500 million to the National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology.
