Kuala Lumpur: Vietnam's top flight will become the latest of Asia's leagues to return to action when the V.League 1 resumes on Friday after a near three-month hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Founded in 1980 in a semi-professional capacity before moving into a profession era at the turn of the Millennium, the V.League has enjoyed a steady rise in recent years, with last season's AFC Cup ASEAN Zonal final between Hanoi FC and Becamex Binh Duong suggesting that some of the strongest club sides in Southeast Asia now hail from Vietnam.
And in further positive news for football fans across Vietnam, matches will not be played behind closed doors, with authorities allowing spectators into stadiums as the country continues to return towards normality.
