In 1967, at the height of the Vietnam War, the Holt government agreed it would be a good idea if Australia's national soccer (football) team took part in a tournament in Vietnam to boost morale in some of the nations involved in the war.
Australia set off for the Vietnam National Day Football Tournament in Saigon at the start of November 1967, and went on to win it undefeated.
In 2017, a 50-year reunion was held by Sydney Cricket Ground Trust to honour the team. These men have been recognised collectively for their pioneering achievement. Football historian, Roy Hay, has written extensively on the tour in his book, Football and War: Australia and Vietnam 1967–1972, A Missing Part of the National Narrative.
