Vietnam seeks $500,000 training centre grant

Vietnam Football Federation is finalizing a project on the construction of a youth football training center in Hanoi, targeted for a FIFA grant of US$500,000. It is reported that the VFF submitted the project to its governing body, the National Committee of Sports and Physical Training, to be forwarded to FIFA in early September. If accepted, the plot of land in the National Sports Complex in Hanoi which was earlier reserved for the construction of a tennis court could be converted to the football training centre.
