During its Pre-Season Tour 2019, Hanoi FC last month visited SCG, the leading business conglomerate in ASEAN, at its headquarters in Bangkok, taking a special tour to witness the company’s innovation and world-class practices that follow sustainable development principles.

In line with “Passion For Better”, SCG and Hanoi FC organized an inspirational talk session with Vietnamese football fans living in Thailand, who shared their footballing passion.

“It is our honor to have cooperated with Hanoi FC during the last two years, which brought joint success with the club winning the V-League in 2018,” said Ms. Venus Asavasitthithavorn, Director of the Enterprise Brand Management Office at SCG. “We’re pleased to welcome the club’s players at our headquarters so they can learn more about SCG and see its sustainable practices and light up the spirit of fans and our employees. It is one of our continuous efforts to promote football in Vietnam and across the region.”

The special visit took players through SCG’s innovation and world-class technologies. Chief among them was the SCG 100 Years Building, built from SCG’s eco-friendly products under careful construction planning and waste management to ensure minimum impact on the environment and help create sustainability in the long run.

The green building reached the highest environmental standard of LEED Platinum (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Building Operation and Maintenance) in 2012 and was the first in ASEAN to do so. The team also experienced advanced Floating Solar panels that helps SCG store and transfer solar energy for its eco operations.

“On this very first visit, we are amazed by SCG’s innovation and facilities,” said team captain Nguyen Van Quyet. “The company has proved itself as a business leader through relentless initiatives to preserve the environment and care for people’s lives.”

SCG also organized an inspirational talk with key players at Hanoi FC for Vietnamese fans in Bangkok. Their passion for football and perseverance through rigorous training have given stars like Van Quyet and Thanh Luong major achievements so far. With this inspirational talk, such spirit was spread out and inspired the Vietnamese overseas to live more enthusiastically and pursue their dreams.

SCG officially became the main sponsor of Hanoi FC in 2017. Following its commitment to contribute to the development of professional football in Vietnam, it has worked with Hanoi FC in various projects, including the “SCG Kick & Share” football clinic for local kids and the SCG Street Football Tournament, and supported the club in attracting more fans to its renovated Hang Day Stadium.

To further support sports development in Vietnam, SCG has been involved in other sports projects such as sponsoring the Ba Ria Vung Tau FC, organizing badminton training for talented young players in Ho Chi Minh City at the SCG Badminton Academy in Thailand, and promoted professional golf through the SCG Inspiration Training for juniors in Hanoi, hosted by leading world golfers Ariya and Moriya Jutanugarn.
