Vietnam are training in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province to prepare for the tournamanet. The team will travel to Singapore on Dec. 1.

AFF Cup will take place from Dec. 5 to Jan. 1. Vietnam are in group B with Laos, Malaysia, Indonesia and Cambodia.

Thailand are the team with most titles (five), followed by Singapore with four. Vietnam have won the title twice, in 2008 and 2018.
