In light of the recent tragedy in Jakarta, the Vietnam Swans and Lao Elephants have announced that the match on 8 August in Hanoi will double as a tribute to Jakarta Bintang, Craig Senger, and the other victims of the Jakarta bombings.
Prior to the match, all players and spectators shall observe a minute’s silence and all players shall wear black armbands.
The Australian Ambassador to Vietnam and a number of Austrade staff shall be in attendance at the match.
It was only in May of this year that the Jakarta Bintangs were in Hanoi playing the Vietnam Swans for the Kainey Cup – named after Bintang Legend and Swans President, Dave Kainey.
Just a few short months later, on the same ground, the Vietnam Swans and Lao Elephants shall pay tribute to a fallen Bintang, 8 other innocents and 50 injured.
