Football matches at the 31st Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games 31) will be hosted at stadiums in three locations. Viet Tri Stadium in the northern province of Phu Tho, one of the three stadiums, has been chosen to host the matches of Group A, in which the U23 soccer team of Vietnam is placed.
The SEA Games 31 is scheduled to be held from May 12 to 23 in Hanoi and 11 nearby localities, with the attendance of around 10,000 athletes and officials from 11 Southeast Asian countries.
