South Korean-based KBS TV station will launch its reality TV Shootdori in Viet Nam under the name Football Kids in August.
The 30-minute show, produced by Viet Nam Television in co-operation with TJB Company, is aiming to discover young football talents.
Vietnamese footballer Nguyen Hong Son will coach potential stars, while comedians Tu Long and Thanh Trung will act as commentators. MC Linh Huong will act as team manager.
Participants will be encouraged to play football while developing their team-building skills through outdoors activities. They will also be given the chance to visit South Korea.
Producers will begin looking for young talent this month, and the first show will be aired at 5.30pm on channel VTV3 on August 28.
TV station KBS launched Shootdori in 2007. More than 500 football clubs for kids have since been established. — VNS
