Feedback regarding the Grand Final Parties in Hanoi and Saigon has been very positive. In Saigon for example, we had a visiting cricket team of 10 from Australia. One sent the Vietnam Swans a follow up email to:
From the Vietnam Swans, thank you to our sponsors, supporters and friends who made the day in both cities such a success. Special mention to the Sydney Swans, Carlton, Melbourne, West Coast and St Kilda who donated footy jumpers to raffle/auction.
Check out the for photos from both events. Bring on the 2009 AFL Grand Final Parties!
Upcoming footy matches
25 October, Saigon – Vietnam Swans Vs Malaysian Warriors
22 November, Phnom Penh Cambodia – Cambodia Vs Thailand Vs Vietnam Vs Lao
We are just two weeks away from our next match which will be in Saigon against the Malaysian Warriors. Malaysia thumped us in KL back in March this year. This time, however, with the combined strength of Hanoi and Saigon playing on our own turf, we are looking very strong.
Saigon, Saturday 11 October, Hari Raya Training
Tomorrow in Saigon, we train at Parkland Resort Apartments An Phu from 2.30pm. After training, we will enjoy some of the best Malaysian food you will ever have – a Hari Raya Feast courtesy of Scott. Showers are available at Parkland so bring a change of clothes.
Hanoi, Saturday 18 October, Green Mango Restaurant’s 1st birthday
The Green Mango Restaurant in Hanoi (18 Hang Quat), a great supporter of the Vietnam Swans, will celebrate its first birthday with an awesome party. A Green Mango delicious 3 course dinner and free flow wine/beer will go from 6.30pm – 1.30am – and set you back just 500,000VND.
Saigon 18 October 2008, Caulfield Cup
One week prior to the Malaysian match, training will be delayed by a day to allow us to celebrate the Caulfield Cup at the Saigon Races races in D10, Saigon. More details to be announced next week but it’s a great fun day. Footy training will be held at Parkland on the Sunday.
Hanoi, 15 November 2008, Tiger Brewery & BBQ
Details are being confirmed as we type but we are back on again at the Tiger Brewery for a kick of the footy which will be followed up with some refreshments and a BBQ. This is definitely a not-to be missed event.
Vietnam Swans on You Tube
A few years ago, the then Hanoi Swans had a 1min 48sec promo video professionally cut. It uses footage from our match against Thailand at My Dinh National Stadium, Hanoi, on 26 November 2005 and splices in some VFL/AFL footage. It’s set to Jet’s “I want to be your girl” – and it’s a classic.
