RECRUITMENT

Chance to become world level players

The student recruitment procedures at PVF football center

The Promotion Fund for Vietnamese Football Talent- PVF introduces their student recruitment procedures with specific notices so that interested boys and their parents can keep themselves updated on.

Since 2009 until now, from March to May every year, PVF conducts recruitment campaigns in 50 cities and provinces (60 spots) and 50 scout facilities and children tournaments nationwide. PVF has so far enlisted eight cohorts who are trained at PVF.

Contenders enrolling at the recruitment are required to take such tests as a 30m sprint, in-site long spring, passing the ball with favorite leg, person versus person competition and height measurement. The recruitment scores are in the 100-point scale, with the maximum for a 30m sprint and on-the-spot long spring being 20. Contestants are asked to pass five balls with favorite leg into the goal, with each precise pass earning one point. The maximum for physique is 15 points, while the person-to-person competition is 40 out of 100 points.

After a three-month recruitment, each year PVF gathers approximately 150 contenders at PVF Training Center, where the boys will receive training in another two months before they take another series of tests. PVF will pick the excellent ones for official training from the contenders in early August each year.
