  1. Hi there
    Congrats on your win in the open tournament in Bangkok this weekend, You mentioned a 7 a side tournament in September as you collected your cup. I’m writing on behalf of Red Star KL the winners of the Vets Cup. I would be interested to know if your 7 a side tournament will have a Vets Cup over 35’s.
    Best Regards
    Neil Sharpe

  2. Minsk FC from Hanoi are strongly considering sending a team. Need to clear something up- when you say you “offer” beer and transport after the tournament, is this included in the registration fee? And over the weekend is there any meals included in the fee? Thanks.
