The draw for the 2012 ASEAN Futsal (indoor football) competition held last Sunday in Kuala Lumpur saw Vietnam placed in Group A with Malaysia, Cambodia, Myanmar, and the Philippines.
It is a fairly good draw for Vietnam because the only strong rivals in the group are Malaysia.
Regional powerhouse Thailand are in Group B against a strong Indonesia besides Brunei and Timor-Leste.
The 2012 AFF Futsal tournament will be held in Bangkok from April 17 to 22.
Also at a meeting in Kuala Lumpur Sunday, the organizers held a draw for this year's AFF Women's Futsal event.
Vietnam are again in Group A which also has Myanmar, Singapore, and the Philippines.
Thailand will take on Laos, Indonesia, and Malaysia in Group B.
Vietnam will host the women's event in Ho Chi Minh City from September 12 to 22.
