The My Dinh national stadium in Hanoi will install a system to assist video assistant referees (VAR) as it will host the national team’s upcoming matches during the final round of 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) regulates that all matches in the third and final round of World Cup qualifiers in Asia will apply the VAR technology.
The installation of the system at My Dinh stadium will be supported by the AFC’s partners.
This is the first time Vietnam have ever played in such round of World Cup qualifiers. They will play in Group B along with Japan, Australia, Saudi Arabia, China and Oman for a spot at the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
The Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) has received in-principle approval from health authorities to host the matches at home.
