After a successful kick-off in Ho Chi Minh City, SCG Street Football 2018 continues its journey to Hanoi for the National Final. The tournament attracted 60 teams with nearly 400 players in Hanoi to play in the regional qualification round.

The best two teams in Hanoi will compete with the best teams in Ho Chi Minh in the Final in the capital’s Old Quarter on October 7.

“With our passion for a better generation in Vietnam through sports, SCG is delighted to host SCG Street Football in both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City,” said Mr. Chartchai Jadtanim, SCG’s Country HR Director in Vietnam. “Street football is the starting point for many football stars, so we would like to see many more talent in Vietnam grow up from our street football tournament.”

Aiming to excite football players and football fans alike, SCG Street Football 2018 not only features the competition but also brings interesting football mini games to spectators of all ages. Under the theme #fromstreettostar, the Kid Talent contest will find football talent under 14 years of age in Hanoi through unique challenges.

“This is the first time we’ve competed in such a street football tournament,” said a member of FC Phui, one of teams. “The competition rules are quite unique, making teams play wholeheartedly and keep spectators interested until the final whistle. The atmosphere at the tournament is entertaining for everyone.”

SCG Street Football 2018 is the second holding by SCG after the success of the first in Hanoi last year. The tournament has been expanded to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City this year, in a 3v3 format for players from 16 to 22. After the regional qualification rounds in Ho Chi Minh City (September 8) and Hanoi (September 29) to find the best four teams from both regions, the National Final will take place in Hanoi’s Old Quarter on October 7.
