Two Vietnamese Under-13 teams Dong Thap and Dong Tam Long An (DTLA), are in Jakarta to contest the second edition of the Yamaha ASEAN U13 Cup.

Vying for the title at the July 29- August 1 event are a team each from Thailand and Malaysia and two teams from the host nation. The six teams will fight in two groups for the top two spots in each group at Jakarta's Bojonegoro Stadium.

The two Vietnamese U13 teams were the top two in Vietnam in 2009 and should have competed in Jakarta last year, but the tournament was cancelled due to some uncertainty in Indonesia at the time.

After the competition finishes in Jakarta today (August 1), organizers will hold a match between the event champions and the 2010 U13 champions in Vietnam the HCMC PVF U13 team.

The first edition of this competition was held in Vietnam's Central city of Da Nang in 2008 and hosts SHB Da Nang took the championship.
