Online Daily Fantasy Sports in Vietnam
The only way to play daily fantasy sports in Vietnam is through a foreign operator. Currently, DFS is unregulated in Vietnam and while the legality is somewhat under question, it is most likely frowned upon by the government.
Football is considered the most popular sport in Vietnam. When Vietnam was split between the north and the south, two national football teams existed. The north played sparingly, and only to other communist nations. After the civil war ended, the teams were merged and in 1991 had their first international game against the Philippines. Both domestic and international football games are popular in Vietnam, making it a hot market for daily fantasy football leagues to market to.
Rugby in Vietnam has seen an increase in popularity over the years. The Indochinese Cup was created in 1999 as a 4 team tournament between Saigon, Hanoi, Vientiane, and Phnom Penh. International rugby is also gaining viewership, and many online daily fantasy rugby leagues are available to play here.
The future of internet daily fantasy sports in Vietnam remains unclear. It is possible that the government would consider it a game of skill, and move towards legalization and regulation. The more likely scenario is that it will remain banned and will only be accessible through foreign DFS websites.
