The Vietnamese capital of Hanoi will be the venue for the 6th edition of the Asian Under 23 Fencing Championships. The Vietnamese Fencing Federation officially submitted its intention to host an FCA event for the first time in this Southeast Asian country.
Though fencing was played in Vietnam in the past, the new Vietnamese Fencing Federation was reorganized in the early 2000 as the sport was included in the calendar of the 2003 Southeast Asian Games held in Hanoi. Vietnamese fencers made a dramatic push forward notably winning some medals in FCA competitions and qualifying fencers in the London and Rio Olympic Games
The 2017 Asian Under 23 Fencing Championships is scheduled for October 8 to 14, 2017.
