Among the delegation’s key goals is to determine whether football club bosses should also serve on their leagues’ board of directors, as the federation is doing.
“We should seek evaluation and feedback from Japanese football experts about VPF’s current system,” said Hy.
He added that “J-League is a successful scheme of managing football, which yields big profits without any disputes.”
The federation embarked on a similar fact-finding mission to Japan earlier this season.
The delegation consists of VFF deputy chairman Pham Ngoc Vien, VFF general secretary Ngo Le Bang, VPF chairman Vo Quoc Thang, and VPF deputy CEO Pham Phu Hoa.
