Scavi-Rocheteau Academy, which is located in Ho Chi Minh City, is the first football academy in Vietnam. Its first class started in 2006 and some of their young players are already part of Vietnam U18. Interestingly, three young players, all 17 years old, were sent to France for three weeks trial with St Etienne and Montpellier this September. Check the website of Scavi-Rocheteau Academy.
One more interesting thing about football in Ho Chi Minh City. Remember Saigon International Football League that I wrote about a few months ago? One friend of mine has just started a new team to take part in that competition. Any one interested in some weekend football, expats or Vietnamese, can join the team.
