ACA Football Partners Pte. Ltd. (Singapore, CEO: Hiroyuki Ono, ACAFP), together with its owner club KMSK Deinze from Belgium, entered into a partnership with Promotion Fund of Vietnamese Football Talent Football Academy (PVF) in Vietnam to work on the youth players development. This time we are delighted to announce that this project has been officially certified by the embassy to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and Vietnam.
In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and Vietnam in 2023, the committee has been working on certifying projects which could promote mutual understanding and friendship between the two countries.
ACAFP and KMSK Deinze announced a partnership with PVF in July 2022 to collaborate in the development of academy players between Vietnam and Belgium. In September of the same year, KMSK Deinze also announced a partnership with VTVcab, one of the biggest media companies in Vietnam, to broadcast a documentary program which follows the stories of PVF players who challenge their life to pursue their dreams.
The project has been recognized and chosen to be one of the projects to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and Vietnam, as the committee values it to connect Asia and Europe through football, and the main project leaders are Japanese.
