Myanmar football, futsal teams to compete in Viet Nam SEA Games


Both Myanmar men and women teams of football and futsal will compete in the upcoming South East Asian (SEA) Games to be held in Viet Nam, according to the Myanmar Football Federation.
There will be the futsal and beach soccer match at the Viet Nam SEA Games but Myanmar will only compete in football and futsal.
Viet Nam listed both men and women tourneys for football and futsal as the nation is in a good position to win medals in both events.
Myanmar is also planning to compete in all the competitions.
Men’s football is a regular part of the SEA Games, but women’s football and futsal are included depending on the host country.
The women’s football tournament was introduced in 1985, but this is the 12th time it has been included, and the futsal tournament was introduced in 2007.
Futsal has only been included in the SEA Games four times: 2007, 2011, 2013, and 2017.
The futsal event was not included in the previous 2019 SEA Games in the Philippines.
Myanmar men’s football teams have already won five gold medals, four silver medals and five bronze medals while women’s football teams have garnered three silver medals and seven bronze medals in the SEA Games history.
Similarly, Myanmar Futsal Women’s Team has collected one bronze medal while Men’s Team has earned no medals in the SEA Games.
The Myanmar men’s and women’s football teams competed in international competitions at the end of this year, but the futsal teams have been away from international competitions for a few years. — Ko Nyi Lay/GNLM
