The Jakarta Bintangs who were due to have a week long tour through Vietnam and play a match against the Vietnam Swans in Saigon on 16 May and another in Hanoi on 23 May 2009 have had to cancel the Saigon leg of the tour.
The Bintangs have advised that the cancellation was “due to heavy work commitments and the whole financial crisis thing. (The) guys are feeling a little stretched to take the time off work.”
The Hanoi leg of the tour will proceed as originally scheduled on 23 May at the UN International School.
The Jakarta Bintangs last toured Vietnam in March 2006 when the then Hanoi Swans recorded our first ever victory.
The Swans are still to make our first tour to Jakarta.
