The T&T Cup (formerly Agribank Cup) is an annual football tournament organised in Vietnam. The organisation of the tournament was announced on August 19, 2004, replacing the Indenpendence Cup. In 2008 the tournament was renamed due to the withdrawal of the Vietnam Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development as the main sponsor. Participants are either club teams or national teams, but the Vietnam national team is always a participant.
Renamed as T&T Cup for 2008.
