Hanoi FC wins a slot at AFC Cup

Under the new rules, the champion of the 2020 V.League 1 will automatically qualify for the group stage of next year’s AFC Champions League.

Meanwhile, the Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) will send the winner and runner-up of the National Cup to compete in the AFC Cup’s group stage.

In case Hanoi FC, which has won the National Cup this year, also grab the 2020 V.League 1 title, the two slots at the AFC Cup will go to the runner-up and the second runner-up.

Hanoi FC brought home the National Cup trophy on September 20 after beating city rival Viettel 2-1 in a dramatic final.
