  • 2011 - The club is founded as Hà Nội T&T's Youth Team and finishes 8th in it's first season in the First Division (V-League 2)

  • 2012 - Despite finishing 2nd, the club is denied promotion to V-League 1 as rules forbid one owner having two sides in the same division.

How to Get to the SVĐ Thống Nhất

This is obviously the easiest of away games to get to as both clubs share the same venue.  Therefore there is no need for flight, bus or train details.  There are various ways you can get to the stadium from the different districts of HCM.  You can ride, grab a motorbike taxi (Grab or Go Viet) or local bus services.  Parking at the stadium can sometimes be an issue so it is best not to arrive too late.
