The VFF will also work with Hanoi’s authorities to ensure members of the visiting teams and their support staff along with all visiting officials stay within protective “bubbles” to minimise the risk of spreading the virus, as the matches will likely be held at the city’s My Dinh Stadium.
The “bubble” approach was used with success for the final matches in the second round of qualification in the UAE last month.
With the proposal approved, the VFF and other authorities will work to iron out the full details between now and Vietnam’s first home qualifier against Australia on September 7.
Previously, it was reported that the VFF may have been forced to hold the matches overseas due to worsening Covid-19 outbreaks in Vietnam.
This is the first time Vietnam have ever played in the third and final round of World Cup qualification. They will play in Group B along with Japan, Australia, Saudi Arabia, China and Oman for a spot at the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
