Hanoi (VNA) - Z.com, the global brand by Japanese internet services provider GMO Internet Group, has become the Vietnamese national football team’s top star partner for the second year in a row.

As per the contract signed by the Vietnam Football Federation and Z.com, the company will focus on the national men’s and women’s senior teams, and the national U22 squad.
Ngo Van Tau, director of GMO-Z.com Runsystem, said it was an honour to continue as the main sponsor of the national football squads.

“Last year, we encouraged and fully supported all teams who tried their best, played great football and reached positive results in many tournaments, bringing happiness to local fans,” Tau said. “That is what Z.com wanted from the partnership. We decided to continue partnering with them for another year. We hope to see the players’ efforts for national football.”

Apart from finance assistance, Z.com has also pledged to promote the teams’ activities on its website and consider providing other support in case Vietnam wins in regional and Asian competitions.

Nguyen Huu Thang, head coach of the men’s team, said he hoped that with Z.com’s support his players would get the opportunity to participate in training camps in Japan, or play with strong Japanese clubs, who could be invited to Vietnam, so that his players could improve their experience and quality of game.

Z.com is also one of the sponsors for national striker Nguyen Cong Phuong, who will be the company’s image ambassador for the second straight year.-VNA
