After delays and despite remaining doubts about the participating teams, the ASEAN Super League (ASL) has been given a start date for its much-awaited kick-off.
With clubs from Thailand and Malaysia are afraid that the super league would ruin their strong-growing domestic league, Vietnamese champions Becamex Binh Duong, on the other hand, are interested in the ideas of participating in the annual tournament.
Cao Van Chong, general director of Becamex Binh Duong, claimed the Vietnamese powerhouse are interested in the much-anticipated competition but was waiting for the regulations before they would decide to join or not.
“ASEAN Super League would fit our strength and philosophy. If the system allows Binh Duong to compete, we will invest for further improvement and participate in the tournament,” said Chong, on Vietnam’s Thanh Nien Newspaper.
“However, we have not had much info about the ASEAN Super League. The system has to be put in place first, either by AFF or by the clubs themselves.”
