Vietnam Swans Boost Local Development

The Vietnam Swans have a proud history of local community engagement through fundraising and junior clinics, and 2016 will see further investment in a bid to get more Vietnamese locals playing and touring with the senior team.

It’s all part of an exciting local development plan initiated by the Swans, as they build towards hosting the 2016 Asian Championships in Ho Chi Minh City in October, followed by sending a representative Indochina Bulldogs team to compete in the International Cup in Melbourne, Australia in 2017.

sonny hangerVietnam Swans President Grant Keys says its important Vietnam is well represented in the Indochina team that travels to Melbourne in 2017.

“It reflects the great history and development of our game in Vietnam, and can showcase the amount of sporting talent we know exists here,” Keys said.

Football Department Manager Dan Morrison has praised the efforts of the local players as they learn a new game.

“Aussie Rules isn’t that easy to pick up. It’s fast, it’s physical, so we’re getting new local players used to the basic skills and game structure, and we now have 4 or 5 players ready to represent the Swans on tour.”

There were positive signs early when defender Nguyen Huynh Quang Vinh was awarded player of the tournament in the preseason 9’s competition in Ho Chi Minh City, having only recently arrived at the Swans after being involved with Rugby.

The Swans will implement a series of initiatives in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, including new player training days, tour subsidies, and local high school and university programs in a bid to boost local participation.
