The 2010 National U.21 Football Final Round will stay true to its "green-clean and beautiful, "policy, Thanh Nien Media Corporation Chairman Nguyen Cong Khe said at a press conference in Gia Lai Province on Wednesday,

Khe, chief of the October-7-to-17 event organizing committee, also said they would consistently work to improve the quality of the game.

"The U.21 tournament will always be a healthy playground where young talents are found for Vietnamese football."

It is also a stepping stone for many young players to join the National U23 squad and the National team and help young players improve and make contributions to their clubs, as well, Khe said.

The past 13 national events and three international U.21 events (also sponsored by Thanh Nien) have found and introduced good players who have been key to the success of the national teams.

Some of these people include Cong Vinh, Hong Son, Tan Tai and Quang Hai who together helped earn Vietnam the Suzuki ASEAN Football Federation Cup in 2008.

The organizers of the 14th youth football tournament in Pleiku Town have decided to allow free entry to the matches.
