Representative of Vietnam Sports Administration said that after checking and finalizing the quality of this stadium on October 28, the agency will contact with Asian Football Confederation (AFC) to review again its quality to decide whether it meets the requirements to host the matches of Vietnam National Football Team in the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers in Asia or not.

Previously, AFC sent a delegation to Hanoi to directly check the football field of My Dinh National Stadium and required Vietnam Football Federation and My Dinh national stadium Organizing Board to promptly renovate and upgrade items, including a football field, sound and lighting system and functional rooms for organizing board, referees, VAR, press conference and dressing which have yet met the international standard to host the next matches.

Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Hoang Dao Cuong directed the My Dinh National Sports Complex to clean all the stand areas in advance of October 20 to hand over to the Central Project Management Board under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism to prepare for renovating and upgrading the stadium serving for SEA Games 31 which is scheduled to take place in May 2022.
