“Seeking for Vietnamese academic futsal talents” program this year which was organized by HCMC Football Federation (HFF) in cooperation with HCMC Department of Education and Training has partly shown a new breakthrough in school football movement. The success of the program was revealed instantly in the first days of the selection. The highlighting point of the program is the ardent passion and participation of several students and pupils as well as the enthusiastic support of teachers and lecturers.

Mr.Tran Anh Tu – President of HFF – insisted: “Today almost every university and college has their own multi-purpose gymnasium, thus, it is suitable to develop futsal. On the other hand, artificial grass fields with five-player football has developed recently, this is a good foundation for the development of school football. The first goal of this program is to popularize futsal to schools so that students and pupils can be aware of interesting things of football and love this sport. Actually, at this time we do not attach much importance to finding talents to supplement for futsal clubs. What we hope is that school football will grow up strongly, and as a result, HCMC football will be more developed.
He continued: “The major reason why HCMC football has gone down is the weakness in youth training. We did not pay attention to soccer teachers. And weak teachers cannot result in good learners. In addition, seeking talented players seem to be so difficult as parents do not want their children to participate in top sports, especially football. Therefore, the important mission in the coming time is to rehabilitate youth football. Specifically, beside organizing vocational competitions, HFF also has to bring football into schools. As school football is developed, there are many sources for coaches to select players”.
