The national tournament had originally been scheduled to take place between March 17 and March 21, with the event being postponed due to the impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, according to the Volleyball Federation of Vietnam (VFV).
The opening round is set to get underway in Hanoi and the northern province of Quang Ninh between April 11 and April 15 with the aim of seeking talents who can play for the Vietnamese national volleyball team ahead of upcoming international tournaments.
Moving forward, the nation’s leading volleyballers are poised to gather in preparation for the 31st Southeast Asian Games participating in the second round of the PV Gas tournament which is planned to take place later this year.
The draw to decide which teams will make up the different groups were held in Hanoi on March 5.
The teams will then compete in a round-robin format in order to select the four best-performing teams to progress to the second round, with the final round slated to transpire later this year.
