“When I played for Vietnam team against Arsenal at My Dinh Stadium Mid-July, I had a special thought for Audi as their spectacular new Audi Hanoi branch is located very close to the My Dinh stadium” commented Cong Vinh.
For the first time, Vietnam will be present with a professional football player observing the Audi Cup where top players like Arjen Robben, Pep Guardiola, Bastian Schweinstelger, Franck Ribéry, Kevin-Prince oateng, Yaya Touré, Lúcio, Edson Silva and Mario Balotelli compete.

In 2013, the Audi Cup is again billed as “Meet the best.” The participants are top caliber teams in line with this motto. FC Bayern München as the host will receive the teams from Manchester City FC, AC Milan and São Paulo FC.
At the inaugural event of the tournament in 2009, FC Bayern left the field as the winner and in 2011 the club was only defeated by FC Barcelona in the finale.
