The Vietnam Swans are pleased to announce a new partnership with leading Vietnamese sports television station Bong Da TV to increase the awareness of Aussie Rules football in Vietnam.
Over the course of the next year in the lead up to the AFL’s International Cup to be held in Melbourne in August 2017, BongDa TV will closely follow and report Swannies games and results, with a focus on the personal journey of a number of our new Vietnamese players in Hanoi and HCMC as they learn the game, compete at the inaugural All-Asian Cup at Asian Champs and travel with the team to games and tournaments.
The first report, filmed at the Swannies Hanoi training session last Saturday, features new local players Trung and Duc. Both have been regular attendees at Hanoi training’s since the successful Open Session for new players was held on 27 August. We hope to see both guys playing their first ever game of Aussie Rules alongside many other of our regular Vietnamese players when the combined IndoChina team lines up against China and Indonesia at the All-Asian Cup on Friday 14th October at RMIT Saigon Campus.
Go you Swannies!!
