- 2014 Season Draw: Unreveal Teams of promotion/relegation15:43 | 24/11/2013
In the evening of November 21st, VPF decided the schedule for professional tournaments in 2014. However, the list of which teams win promotion or are relegated isn’t defined.
V-League includes 13 teams: Ha Noi-T&T, V-Hai Phong, SLNA, Quang Ninh Coal and Mineral, Thanh Hoa, V-Ninh Binh, QNK-Quang Nam, SHB-Ds Nang, HA-GL, HV-An Giang, B-Binh Duong, DT-LA, Dong Nai which will kick off on November 1st to August 31st. Because there are 13 attendants, 2014 V-League is though to be difficult to arrange schedule at the same time in last rounds. For that reason it will be easy for negative games to tak place. VPF General Director Pham Ngoc Vien said that VPF had also thought of situations and solving when problems happen.
Meanwhile, the first division has 8 teams: Tay Ninh, Sanna Khanh Hoa, XSKT-Can Tho, Ho Chi Minh City, Dak Lak, Hue, Ha Noi and Dong Thep. Therefore, There are only 14 rounds within 3 months from March 15th to June 28th. The Vietnamese Super Cup clash will happen on January 4th 2014. Then the national Cup will kick off on February 15th and last to September 6th 2014.
However the expected list of the list of which teams win promotion or are relegated isn’t defined. VPF suggests that 2 teams are relegated to the first division and 1 team wins promotion so that V-League attendants will be an even number. This idea will be discussed on November 29th in the management board meeting then result has to wait till that day.
Specially, after two representatives of two leagues Tran Duy Ly ( V-League) and Nguyen Huu Bang ( the first division) resign, VPF can’t find suitable replacement. In the meeting, VPF said that two new representatives will be only announced before the opening ceremony 3 weeks.
In 2014 season, VPF is going to support clubs that is expected to be 15 billion for V-League’s clubs and 5 billion for 1st division’s ones. However Clubs must obey rules from organizers such as: spirit, attitude, finance…
