The Vietnamese teams include the youth sides of Ho Chi Minh City FC and Hoa Lu FC, while the Singaporean squad hails from the acclaimed International Soccer Academy.

Round-robin matches between the six teams will take place tomorrow from 1pm, after which the ranked sides will be paired off in finals on Sunday morning from 10am to decide the overall standings.
TVK is slated to screen live action from Sunday’s finals.

Matches are seven-a-side, played on pitches of 45 x 35 metres, and all players must be born after January 1, 1998.
