Head coach of the national football team Park Hang-seo on July 18 affirmed his determination to help the U23 Vietnamese team overcome the qualifying round of the upcoming 2018 Asian Games (ASIAD 2018).

He made the affirmation during a ceremony in Hanoi to announce Vietnam Professional Milk JSC (VPMilk) as official football sponsor of both the Vietnamese national team and U23 team.

General Secretary of the Vietnam Football Federation Le Hoai Anh said he believes that with the support of VPMilk, athletes can enjoy better health to compete in the tournament.

VPMilk Director of External Relations Nguyen Thu Ngoc said the team’s success is a delight they are greatly proud of, and as such the firm has decided to continue partnering with the national football team for the second consecutive year.

ASIAD 2018 will take place in Indonesia from August 18-September 2, 2018. The host country confirmed that up to 32 men’s football teams have registered for the competition, a record number.
