Tech giant FPT has purchased the screening rights for the final round of World Cup Asian qualifiers, including Vietnam’s matches.

All games will be broadcast exclusively via FPT TV and FPT Play. Ten Vietnamese qualifiers can also be viewed on mobile app Foxy and FPT Play Box.

Vietnam advanced to the final round of World Cup Asian qualifiers after the second round concluded Tuesday.

In the final round, Vietnam and 11 other teams will be divided into two groups of six to compete for World Cup slots. The top two teams of each group will directly qualify, while third-placed teams play for a slot in the World Cup playoffs.

The final round is set to take place between Sept. 2, 2021 and March 29, 2022. The draw for the final round will be held on June 24 at the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) headquarters in Kuala Lampur, Malaysia.

Vietnam also qualified for Asian Cup 2023, for which FPT also acquired broadcasting rights, along with AFC from 2021 to 2024.
