The 2010 VFF Cup will be mainly sponsored by Son Ha Company to develop football in Vietnam. As of that, this year's competition was named the VFF SonHa Cup.

Traditionally, the VFF Cup is a meeting place between two predestined rivals Vietnam and Thailand. However, Thailand refused to participate in this tournament causing difficulties for the organizers.[1][2] Finally with the participation of Singapore,[3] Korean and North Korean students believe that the quality of the tournament is guaranteed.
