At the beginning, the club's home crisis was a dust and sandy training ground of the militia forces where were usually called as Sân Dệt or the "stadium" of the Namdinh Spinning Factory. It was old crisis of the Vietnamese National Army's military academy.

From the end of 1970s, their home crisis was Thiên Trường Stadium.[1] During the Vietnam War, this stadium was only a big and polluted pond with some vegetable fields. Formely Sân Chùa-Cuối or the "Pagoda at end of the street" Stadium from one uninhibited temple which has got some daoist icons.
