2016 V.League’s third place SHB Da Nang will participate in the 2016 Mekong Club Championship, Vietnam’s V.League officials confirmed.
Previously, the V.League winners have usually been offered to play in the tournament, but newly-crowned Hanoi T&T won’t be able to play due to undisclosed reasons. As a result, SHB Da Nang has been selected to replaced Hanoi T&T in the Mekong Club Championship.
This is the first time SHB Da Nang take part in the Mekong Club Championship. In the two previous seasons, Becamex Binh Duong represented V.League at the tournament.
