Opportunity to Bring Vietnamese Football Closer to Advanced Platforms

The VFF has partnered with LaLiga to offer advanced training to 40 aspiring football coaches in Vietnam.


The Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) and LaLiga – the largest football ecosystem in the world – signed a cooperation Memorandum of Understanding in September 2023. As part of this partnership, the first advanced training course titled ‘The LaLiga Method’ is being conducted for 40 coaches at young football clubs.

The training workshop is taking place from January 10 to 12 and is being directly guided by two leading experts from LaLiga International and LaLiga Vietnam Academy. Tito Burrell, the technical director of Laliga Academy Vietnam, and Saul Vazquez Chas, the senior expert of Laliga football development project, will provide guidance and training.

The LaLiga Method is completely built based on research on body condition, characteristics, and similarities between Vietnamese and Spanish players. The training focuses on four main aspects: technique, tactics, physicality, and psychology. It aims to develop players’ skills and football intelligence.

This training course is the first collaboration between the VFF and LaLiga experts globally. It will contribute to creating an advanced academic foundation from the Spanish soccer furnace. The guidance from experienced experts will provide opportunities for 40 coaches to expand their thinking, improve coaching skills, and develop development plans for their young football clubs under VFF.

LaLiga Vietnam Academy is taking the first concrete step forward in implementing the cooperation agreement between LaLiga and VFF. The academy is organizing this training course for 40 coaches of Vietnamese young clubs, as well as women’s football teams.

LaLiga is a private sports association that consists of 20 public limited sports companies and clubs. It is responsible for organizing professional football competitions in Spain.
