Hai Phong banned again
VFF has decided to punish Xi Mang Hai Phong for many violent incidents committed by their fans.
As latest report, Hai Phong will have to play its next home game versus HAGL at neutral stadium and will be responsible for all the cost.
Last weekend, Hai Phong fans, as usual, fired some flares and threw bottles into the pitch of Lach Tray stadium in the game between the home side and Ninh Binh. Their conduct resulted in having their beloved club banned from its home soil next game. This is not the first time Hai Phong is punished for its supporters, which are the most infamous and aggressive in Vietnam. Last year, Hai Phong fans were banned from attending away games after their clash with police at Hang Day stadium. Further in 2008, they were banned from attending one game at Lach Tray stadium.
Every time Hai Phong plays at Lach Tray , there are about 25,000 fans cheering for the home team.
