The activities are the offspring of a cooperation with leading Thai conglomerate SCG, which is also the club’s main sponsor for the 2017-2018 season to provide fans new experiences and encourage more spectators to watch games at the stadium.
“As committed at the beginning of our sponsorship, SCG appreciates working with Hanoi FC to enhance the level of professional football in Vietnam via promoting football club standards, attracting more fans to enjoy football as well as using free time to exercise for their well-being and healthy lifestyle.
The attractive ambiance with astounding decoration, together with the engaging activities for spectators are another step to inspire Hanoi fans, especially the younger generations to visit the stadium,” said Montri Mahaplerkpong, SCG Vietnam deputy country director.
Following its commitment to bring up football movements in the locality, SCG and Hanoi FC have made efforts to create attractive visuals over the facade of Hang Day Stadium, highlighting outstanding players from Hanoi under “The Pride of Capital Football” banner.
Besides, fans were invited to join an exciting Penalty King game to win free gifts from the Thai conglomerate.
These moves follow “The Pride of Capital Football” campaign of SCG and Hanoi FC throughout September, where a street tournament was held for the first time in the middle of the iconic pedestrian street of Hanoi, attracting more than 10,000 fans to celebrate for a one-day festival.
On September 17, 2017, SCG and Hanoi FC organised a mini football clinic called “Kick and Share by SCG” in the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau, where the superstars of Hanoi FC taught football skills for 160 local kids, including disabled children.
“Hanoi FC is excited to partner up with SCG and bring more professionalism to the team in both technical and marketing performances. We are excited to see fans starting to flock to the stadium during our Sunday matches, which shows their increasing interest in football and our club,” said Nguyen Quoc Hoi, chairman of Hanoi FC.
SCG, one of the leading conglomerates in the ASEAN region, comprises of three core businesses: SCG Cement-Building Materials, SCG Chemicals, and SCG Packaging.
With more than 200 companies and approximately 57,000 employees under its umbrella, SCG creates and distributes innovative products and services that respond to the current and future needs of consumers.
SCG began operations in Vietnam in 1992 with trading business and gradually expanded investment into the cement-building materials, chemicals, and packaging industries.
