Saigon Xuan Thanh has won First Division 2011 after beating Can Tho 7-3 this afternoon. As a result, the Saigon-based club got promoted to V-League next season. There are still 5 rounds to go in the second tier of Vietnamese football.
Saigon Xuan Thanh is a new club in Ho Chi Minh City. Its former name was Xuan Thanh Ha Tinh, a club based in Ha Tinh province before it was moved to the biggest city of Vietnam in late 2010. Alongside with the relocation, the club was much strengthened with a number of good signings like Huynh Kesley, Le Phuoc Tu and Nguyen Minh Duc.
