Saigon Raiders were founded in 1990 as the first expatriate football team in Vietnam. Originally Scandinavian, we now boast members from all over the world. The Raiders are well known as a club with a fantastic spirit and the right approach to amateur football in Saigon. As our motto ‘More than a club, a lifestyle’ indicates, we strive for just as much fun off the pitch as on it.
