FIFA President Giovanni Infantino visited Vietnam this week where he was received by the Prime Minister of Vietnam, Nguyen Xuan Phuc.

Infantino said that FIFA is developing a school football project in Vietnam, so they will be looking at having the support from the Vietnamese Government, so as to create a favourable condition for football to develop.

In the past, FIFA have sent lecturers and equipment to hold short training courses for Vietnamese football coaches, apart from funding local football tournaments and amateur football events.

Vietnam was recently selected as one of the participants in a pilot programme to develop women’s football in 18 months.
