The Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) stated that this will be the first time VAR will be used in the country.
The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) regulation stated that all matches in the third and final round of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers in Asia will use the VAR technology.
As such, the installation of the VAR system at the My Dình National Stadium will be supported by AFC’s partners.
