Football: Vietnam Football Federation Offer Big Money To Lure Man Utd

Posted on: December 3, 2008

HANOI : The Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) is negotiating to pay up to 2.47 million US dollars to entice Manchester United for a one-off game next year, with AC Milan also on its radar.

“This is a huge amount of money but we can arrange it. We can get money from tickets, advertising and broadcasting rights and so on,” VFF chairman Nguyen Trong Hy was quoted as saying by the Asean Football Federation.

But negotiations with United are far from over.

According to VFF, the Red Devils have insisted on strict conditions for the game, whose date has yet to be set.

These include no advertising at the stadium while Vietnamese players must wear jerseys sporting only their names and national flag, with logos banned.

United last played in Asia in 2007, with stops in Japan, South Korea, Macau and the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou.

Trong Hy added that the VFF is also looking at bringing Italian giants AC Milan to Vietnam in 2009.

“Everything is running well. If AC Milan agrees, the match between the national squad and AC Milan will be held in early September 2009,” Trong Hy said.
