Mango Bay Cup opens to budding footie stars
By Kieu Giang in HCMC
The Mango Bay Phu Quoc Resort is preparing for its fifth annual football tournament for the expatriate community on May 5.
This year, eight expatriate teams, divided into two groups, will compete for the title at the island’s An Thu 3 stadium.
The registration fee is US$300 per team of ten, including one goalkeeper, six starting players and three substitutes. The fee includes complimentary water and players get a reduced rate of US$10 per person for a special BBQ night. Players’ guests can also join the legendary seafood and steak barbeque for US$20 each.
Last year, the final saw the Raiders, which comprised of Saigon ex-pats, defeat the Flippers, who had islanders and expats in their line-up.

Mango Bay Resort, which recently featured in a New York Times article, offers eco-friendly and luxurious accommodation on Phu Quoc Island, with rooms and bungalows starting from US$45 per night.
