A Belgian club KMSK Deinze, owned by ACAFP, announced its partnership in July with one of the top-level football academies in Vietnam, PVF Football Academy, for the purpose of academy players development and since then we have been proceeding with its project. This Summer KMSK Deinze held a selection of 15 years old players in Vietnam, and selected players will move to Belgium from October to do an internship gaining their experience in the European football world.
We strongly believe in the potential of the football market in Vietnam and we are pleased to make this happen by utilizing our global network. This time ACAFP and VTVcab agreed to deliver those young promising players’ stories to all passionate football fans in Vietnam. The first episode focuses on the trial which KMSK Deinze held at PVF and this will be broadcasted by VTVcab in Vietnam from middle of October.

Episode1 : Middle of October on VTVcab
PVF, one of the top football academies in Asia, made a partnership with KMSK Deinze from Belgium.

First episode follows the selection until the club makes its choice which players to bring.

Comment from Mr. Bui Huy Nam, CEO of VTVcab
VTVcab is the number 1 media group that produces and provides original content in Vietnam on multi-platforms, with an audience of more than 15 million viewers using direct and indirect services. VTVcab is honored to be a companion, support media and broadcast for the TV program “RISING STAR“. We evaluate: This is a very meaningful program with unique and attractive content ideas. The program creates opportunities for young Vietnamese football players to be professionally trained and compete in Europe, helping Vietnam discover and foster more young football talents. We hope, after the broadcast, the program will receive a lot of attention and reception from domestic and international audiences. Wishes the young players of Vietnamese football can successfully complete the selection and win a place to go to Belgium. Wishes the cooperation between the Parties will be successful.
Comment from Ms. Nguyen Thi My Dung, Deputy Director of PVF
PVF is a partner in this project, in order to realize a plan which we have made for the players trained and developed at PVF. Creating a good environment for the potential players of Vietnam at PVF to develop themselves is one part of our job. Another part is to find good environment in a more developed football country for our players to experience the atmosphere, train with the youth team in Deinze football Club and expose to football and life activities in a foreign country. We also think that making this process known to the public will encourage more investment into youth development and strengthen the determination of youth players and their families to develop the players’ football career.
Comment from Mr. Bui Quang Anh Vu, CEO of Phat Dat Corporation
As a corporation that willingly accompanies meaningful social activities, Phat Dat Corporation is happy to be a sponsor of this program. Like millions of Vietnamese people, I myself and the staff at Phat Dat all share the love for football – the king of sports. Indeed, Vietnam has many young players with great potential who would bring glory to the nation in the future. Accompanying PVF and ACA Football Partners (ACAFP) is a great honor for Phat Dat in nurturing talents for the country’s sports. I believe that our collaboration would pave the way for young players by providing professional training and stressing their potential to the max so that they can contribute their best performance to Vietnam’s sports as well as to football fans.
Comment from Hiroyuki Ono, CEO of ACAFP and Vice Chairman, Board of Director, KMSK Deinze
First of all I would like to thank all the parties including the program sponsor Phat Dat Corporation to make this project happen. Since we announced our partnership between PVF and KMSK Deinze in July, we have been diving the project and this time I’m delighted to announce that we have reached a new strategic cooperation with VTVcab. This means a lot to us that we can deliver a rich story around talented players from Vietnam to the football fans in Vietnam. Also ACAFP can provide an opportunity to deliver it to the global fans through our unique video streaming service “PlaysiaTV” (https://playsiatv.com/). We strongly believe the football enthusiasm in Vietnam and we are happy to be a part of this project to release the value and potential at global level.
