HÀ NỘI — The Saigon Beer-Alcohol-Beverage Corporation (SABECO) has agreed a deal to sponsor the Việt Nam national football teams for one year.

The sponsorship was signed between SABECO, the Việt Nam Football Federation (VFF) and VTVcab Sport Development Joint Stock Company (VTVCab Sport) in Hà Nội on Friday.

As part of its sponsorship, running from June 2021 to June 2022, SABECO will be the exclusive sponsor in the beer industry of the men’s and women’s national teams, and the U22, U23 and Olympic squads for both national and international competitions.

“We are proud to support the national football teams in their journey towards greater success and share their goal of bringing glory to the country,” said Bennett Neo, SABECO General Director.

Over the last few years, the Vietnamese national football team has seen tremendous success in various international competitions. Most recently, the team advanced to the third round of World Cup qualifiers for the first time in history. 

“We are happy to partner with such a prominent Vietnamese brand such as Saigon Beer,” said Lê Hoài Anh, VFF General Secretary.

“This partnership will bring further support to and motivation for, our players, and help in the development of Vietnamese football as a whole.”

Sports sponsorships have always been a key part of SABECO’s 4C sustainable development strategy.

SABECO previously sponsored the Vietnamese delegation to the 30th Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games) in 2019. It has also sponsored various local sporting events such as 2020 Tiền Phong Newspaper Marathon National Championship as well as international events including the 2018 AFF Suzuki Cup.

Meanwhile Bùi Huy Năm, General Director of VTVCab, shared: “VTVcab is proud to be the only cable TV that produces and broadcasts all worldwide and national most-watched sports leagues, as well as all matches involving Vietnamese national teams.

“Aside from content distribution across a multitude of platforms, VTVcab confirms its significant interest in football, paving the way for VFF to become a long-term strategic partner. It is an honour to walk with SABECO as a supporting partner in order to maximise the media’s effect in support of the Vietnamese national football team’s achievement.”

The Vietnam national futsal team has moved up one place in the August update of FIFA futsal world ranking.

After beating Lebanon in the World Cup qualification playoffs in late May and claiming a ticket to Futsal World Cup 2021, Vietnam climbed from 44th to 43rd on the FIFA futsal world ranking. In the August update, only Vietnam and Japan improved their positions in Asia.

The top three positions in the world remained unchanged, with Spain first, followed by Brazil and Argentina. In Asia, Iran continued to lead, followed by Kazakhstan and Japan.

The national team has started training since late July. They are set to fly to Spain on Aug. 25 to participate in a friendly tournament with hosts Spain, Japan and Guatemala. They will play another exhibition match with Morocco on Sept. 6, before entering Futsal World Cup, held in Lithuania between Sept. 12 and Oct. 3.

At Futsal World Cup, Vietnam are grouped with Brazil, the Czech Republic and Panama. The team will play their first game against Brazil on Sept. 13, then Panama on the 16th, and the Czech Republic on the 19th.

This is the second time Vietnam qualified for the event, after the first in 2016.

They participated in a video making contest themed “Vietnamese women and craft villages”, which was launched by the Empower Women Asia (EWA) project under the NGO Keep It Beautiful Vietnam (KIBV), to honour the women in traditional craft villages together with their efforts to preserve the national cultural values in the modern society.

The contest was held from May to July 2021 through the creation of photos/videos with a duration of 3-5 minutes, carrying the message of promoting and preserving traditional craft villages, while honouring the beauty of the simple, rustic labour of Vietnamese women in general and ethnic minority women in particular in such traditional craft villages.

Taking place mainly on the Facebook channel of the EWA, the contest has attracted many young people at home and abroad, bringing unique and new perspectives on traditional craft villages to the masses nationally and internationally.

After only two months, the organisers received hundreds of entries with diverse and unique content. Through their creative products, young people have reflected the true image of sincere and rustic women in traditional craft villages, evoking their love for their homeland and national pride, while showing their respect and desire to promote the core and long-standing cultural values of the nation.

Among 11 outstanding entries to the final round, a jury of famous journalists, editors, travel bloggers and photographers selected four best works for awards, in which the first prize came to the video “My Nghiep Cham Brocade Village (Ninh Thuan)” by Champasix; the “Crab noodle making village (Hai Phong)” by Nguyen Thanh Loan won the second prize; and two third prizes went to videos “Chang Son Fan Village (Hanoi)” by GEN and “Chuong Hat Village (Hanoi)” by Jelly Potatoes. In addition, the most favoured video award went to “Thach Xa Bamboo Dragonfly Village (Hanoi)” by Le.Morq.

The contest also received the companionship of famous speakers, designers, art activists and influential faces in the public to jointly spread the nation’s traditional cultural features to the community.

It is expected to raise the community’s understanding and respect for traditional craft villages, thereby spreading the message of preserving the quintessence and traditions of the nation, as well as respecting and promoting the nation’s cultural values through the skilful hands of village women in simple, rustic daily labour.

Let’s admire the beauty of the labour of women in traditional villages through the excellent works that won the contest’s top prizes:

Empower Women Asia (EWA) aims to foster the ethnic minority women and girls in the weaving villages of Vietnam to improve their skills, knowledge, and competitive advantages in producing sustainable textile products, creating opportunities to enhance the living standard and secure stable income. This year, EWA is coming back with the theme “Weaving dreams by the handlooms”, which carries hopes and high aspirations toward spreading the beautiful image of mothers and sisters sitting by the looms, weaving their colourful dreams.
