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.
A second motto could be ‘Raiders for life’. Former players stay with the club, attending matches and social events. This, along with our many nationalities, gives us our identity.
We are always looking for new and enthusiastic players. Even if you just want to train, or join in the socials, you are welcome.
If you want regular football in HCMC, we train every Tuesday night from 7.30-9.30pm at Tri Hai Football Complex in An Phu, District 2, just a 10 minute drive from Thao Dien. You pay nothing for your first session.
