Clubs from Brunei, the Philippines, Laos, Cambodia, and Timor-Leste would have taken part in play-off matches to vie for the two remaining berths.

The winner was set to walk away with 500,000 USD.

Vietnam’s representatives at the events were to be V.League 1 champions Hanoi FC and their runners-up Ho Chi Minh City FC.

However, due to the spread of the deadly virus, the organisers decided to delay it to next year.

The VFF reported that the AFF sent a letter to members about the cancellation of the tournament as the pandemic is ongoing and has not been controlled well yet.
