VWU President congratulates Vietnam women’s football team

VWU President Ha Thi Khiet on behalf of VWU Presidium presented 30 million dongs to the Vietnam women’s football team after they won the Southeast Asian Women’s Open Championship.

This is a timely support and encouragement to the women footballers. President Khiet wished the women team many more successes, especially in the coming Asia Championship, as to glorify the country and the women of Vietnam.


Southeast Asian Women’s Open Championship was held in Ho Chi Minh City from May 29 to June 2, 2006 with the participation of 4 strong women teams in the region. Though it is a friendship competition before the Asia Women’s Football Championship, the victory is very meaningful to our girls.


The Vietnamese women players reaffirm their leading position in the Southeast Asia in a convincing manner with three wins: 1-0 over Taiwan, 3-2 over Thailand and 1-0 over the bitter rivals Myanmar
