Previously, 6 clubs proposed to cancel the V.League including Hai Phong, SLNA, Nam Dinh, Binh Duong, Hong Linh Ha Tinh, Saigon FC when VPF sent the organization plan at the end of July 2021.
Thus, a total of 11 clubs had the idea of stopping the V.League altogether. The 3 clubs that have not yet commented are HCMC, Binh Dinh and Thanh Hoa clubs.
The decision to cancel the tournament according to the VFF BCH is to minimize financial losses and help teams have time to prepare for the 2022 season.
Next week, VFF Secretary General, VPF representative will work with 14 V.League clubs, 13 clubs in the National First Division to discuss the cancellation of the tournament.
V.League 2021 is suspended from May 7, right before round 13. VPF planned to have the tournament organized again on July 31, but could not do so due to the heavy impact of the Covid-19 epidemic.
VFF and VPF then postponed the tournament to February 2022 but faced strong objections from Hai Phong club president Van Tran Hoan.
