HÀ NỘI — The Việt Nam Athletics Federation (VAF) has received strong support from Li-Ning Company to reach higher results in the future.
The VAF and Hải Long International Company Limited, Li-Ning representative in Việt Nam, signed a three-year sponsorship on December 5 in Hà Nội.
According to their deal, the two sides expand their cooperative relationship. Accordingly, Li-Ning continues to be the official uniform sponsor for the VAF in the period of 2023-25.
2023 will be the eighth year in a row that Li-Ning has provided professional training and competition apparel, equipment for athletes, coaches and related members of the VAF.
The company hopes to help athletes create new miracles in local and international tournaments, as well as develop the potential of the country’s athletics.
“The VAF recognises the contribution of the Li-Ning to the success of Vietnamese athletics in recent years,” said Nguyễn Mạnh Hùng, VAF general secretary.
“The competition uniforms are made with advanced, modern, well-fitting materials. The clothes represent the national colours and spirit, and push athletes’ confidence and motivation during competition, aiming for the best achievements.
“We believe that the tight cooperation between the two sides will further support athletes in achieving high performance, and at the same time help Vietnamese athletics make new strides in the coming time,” he said.
