HistoryEdit

In 1960, Vietnam Football Association was established in the North. Its first president Hà Đăng Ấn, head of Railway Department and a former football star. In the South under control of the Republic of Vietnam, a similar Association was also founded to administer football activities in the South.

Football has been played in Vietnam since the early 20th century, however, due to the war, it had not been developed into a movement. Due to the division of Vietnam, football was played differently in the two parts of the country until 1975.

In 1989, following the Đổi mới reforms, Vietnamese sports began to return to international events. After three months of preparation, in August 1989, the First Congress of the new football federation took place in Hanoi, declaring Vietnam Football Federation. Trịnh Ngọc Chữ, deputy minister of General Department of Sports, was elected president of VFF and Lê Thế Thọ was appointed general secretary.
