SCG, a leading Thai business conglomerate in the ASEAN region, worked with Hanoi FC to donate sports equipment to three secondary schools in neighboring communities at a recent V-League football match in the capital between Hanoi FC and Thanh Hoa FC.

SCG also supported the hundreds of students watching the match at Hanoi’s Hang Day Stadium. There were also new stadium decorations to create an atmosphere of excitement among fans.

“This is the first time we have invited students to attend a big game and supported them with the necessary sports equipment,” said Ms. Venus Asavasitthithavorn, SCG’s Enterprise Brand Manager. “We plan to create a football clinic called Kick and Share, to give children basic football skills. We hope they will enjoy it.”

After a comprehensive study with schools in the area, SCG donated sports facilities to three secondary schools in Hanoi (Nguyen Trai, Nguyen Tri Phuong and Thong Nhat), to support human development. It also invited students from high schools and universities in the capital to attend the match. Such initiatives are aimed at encouraging and inspiring Hanoi’s young to spend their free time at sporting activities.

Early this year, SCG announced it would sponsor Hanoi FC in the 2017/2018 season, which comes from a desire to support the development of professional football in Vietnam and which is also in line with its corporate sustainable development strategy for human development. The collaboration also marks a milestone for SGC in sports sponsorship in Vietnam, and it expects it to be a starting point for other sports development projects in the future.

SCG is a leader in many corporate social responsibility projects that focus on human development. Chief among them are the SCG Sharing the Dream Scholarship program, benefiting almost 4,000 Vietnamese students over ten years, the SCG Sharing the Dream Playground at Hoang Van Thu Park in Ho Chi Minh City, and the SCG International Internship Program for university graduates, among others.

SCG comprises three core businesses: SCG Cement-Building Materials, SCG Chemicals, and SCG Packaging. With more than 200 companies under its umbrella and approximately 52,500 employees, it creates and distributes innovative products and services that respond to the current and future needs of consumers.

SCG began its business operations in Vietnam in 1992 with trading, then gradually expanded its investment into diverse business lines in the cement-building materials, chemicals, and packaging industries.

Today, with total of 22 companies in Vietnam and over 6,900 employees, SCG offers a variety of premium products and services to markets.
