VietinBank and Chelsea Football Club signed an agreement in Hanoi on November 15 which will see co-branded debit cards made available to fans in Vietnam.

The new card has been designed for the millions of loyal Chelsea fans living in Vietnam , and will allow them to enjoy privileges from both VietinBank and Chelsea, including the chance to participate in club events and receive gifts signed by first-team players.

The deal is seen as an opportunity for VietinBank to capitalise on widespread Chelsea support.

Adrian New, Managing Director of Chelsea FC Asia, said “Chelsea FC is delighted to announce our first partnership with a Vietnamese company, enabling our many millions of fans in Vietnam to further engage with the club. This is a further example of our commitment to Asia and to our Asian fans”.-VNA
