    Vietnam to co-host AFF Suzuki Cup 2010
    06:14 | 16/07/2009
    According to the Vietnam Football Federation, on July 14, the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) has officially named Vietnam and Indonesia as co-hosting countries for the AFF Suzuki Cup 2010, with Malaysia as a standby country.

    The regulations for the Cup are the same as the two previous events. Specifically, the six national football teams who had the best records will be directly entered into the final round (including Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Myanmar). The five weaker countries of Lao DRP, Brunei, Cambodia, the Philippines and East Timor will battle each other in qualifying round for two places in the final round.

    AFF also announced the schedule for the qualifying round, from 16-24 October 2010 in Lao DRP (Brunei will be the standby country).

    Round-table for the Cup will be held from 1- 7 December 2010 (Group A) and 2- 8 December 2010 (Group B). The first leg of the semi-final round will take place from 15 – 16 December 2010, and the second leg of the semi-final round is on the 18 – 19 December. The ASEAN football body governing agency said that the first leg of the final match will be held on the 26 December 2010 and the last match will be held on the 29 December 2010.

    By co-hosting the event, Vietnam will be able to create favorable conditions to defend its championship because Thailand, in the 2008 Cup, had “cleverly” created a lot of unfavorable conditions for their rivals by selecting Phuket province as the venue.

    However, Vietnam has less favorable conditions than Thailand due to the fact that, whatever playing in a hosting or visiting stadium, Vietnam has to pass through the qualifying round.

    In the 1998 and 2004 Cups, the Vietnam national team had never ever gained a championship.

    In the history of the Tiger Cup and AFF Cup, Thailand and Singapore are the two hosting counties to stand on top. Vietnam, in this upcoming event is hoping to become the third team to gain this title.
