Brussels (VNA) – The Belgian Vietnamese Alliance (BVA) and the Deinze Football Club NV (KMSK Deinze) on December 4 (local time) organised an event “Vietnam Night” in Brussels to popularise Vietnam’s people and country as well as three young Vietnamese footballers who are attending professional training in Belgium.

The three footballers, all aged 15, started their 3-month training course at KMSK Deinze, a Belgian second-division team owned by the ACA Football Partners (ACAFP), in October.

BVA President Andries Gryffroy introduced to the guests Vietnam’s tourist attractions and its people, saying that the country is an attractive destination that Belgian tourists should not miss.

Akihisa Lizuka, Chief Strategy Officer of the football club, introduced ACAFP's football development strategy, in which Southeast Asia, Europe and Japan are markets that it is eyeing.

Last summer, ACAFP signed a cooperation project with the Promotion Fund for Vietnamese Football Talent (PVF) to train young football players./.
