The 66th professional edition of the top-flight football league in Vietnam will be renamed the Night Wolf V-League 1 this season, thanks to a sponsorship by Ngoc Linh Kon Tum Ginseng Joint Stock Company – which just signed a three year deal for the league. 

Due to the previous season being canceled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, no teams were promoted or relegated during the 2021 season.

All but one club from the 2021 season will contest in the league. 

Than Quang Ninh FC will not be permitted to participate due to financial reasons, leaving the league starting with just 13 clubs — namely Becamex Binh Duong, Dong A Thanh Hoa, Hanoi, Hai Phong, Hoang Anh Gia Lai, Hong Linh Ha Tinh, Nam Dinh, Saigon, SHB Da Nang, Song Lam Nghe An, Ho Chi Minh City, Topenland Binh Dinh, and Viettel.

The 2022 Night Wolf V-League 1 champions will receive a cup, a gold medal, and a monetary prize of VND3 billion (US$132,260).
