The wheels of sports in Vietnam are rolling again after a long pandemic break with over 20 events scheduled this month.

On June 1, National Futsal Championship 2020 kicked off, along with the U19 national women’s football tournament. Four days later, the top football division in Vietnam, V. League 1, also returned with its third fixture, as well as lower division, V. League 2. On the same day, national tournaments in Muay Thai and chess also recommenced.

On June 7, the HTV cycling cup concluded with Spanish Javier Sardá Perez winning the title.

Vietnam had decided in March to postpone all sports events in the country due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Football, futsal and cycling have all returned to action since late May.

June promises even more sporting events, notably National Volleyball Championship 2020. The first round of the tournament will be held from June 13 to 17 in northern Ha Tinh and Bac Ninh provinces.
