Germany's Bundesliga I club Eintracht Frankfurt will play two friendly matches with Vietnam's national football team and a top-tier V-League club in May, the Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) said on Wednesday.

The German top-tier club will play the national team at My Dinh Stadium on May 12 before flying south to play a southern V-League club at Ho Chi Minh City's Thong Nhat Stadium four days later, VFF said.

VFF has not chosen a V-League club in the south but it could be V-League champs Da Nang, runners-up Binh Duong or Navibank Saigon.

The friendly matches are being organized to mark the 35th anniversary of establishing ties between Vietnam and Germany, VFF said.

Authorities of the German state of Hassen met with Vietnam's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and VFF to arrange the friendlies.

VFF said it would finance the German club's trip to Vietnam for the friendly matches.

Eintracht Frankfurt was established in 1899 and currently holds eighth place in the Bundesliga I.
