Bia Saigon is no stranger in the country’s sport and culture where it has also sponsored the Tiền Phong National Marathon in 2020, and other international sporting activities, including the AFF Suzuki Cup 2018.
Bia Saigon is also the first Vietnamese company to accompany the Premier League, when Bia Saigon brand became the official sleeve sponsor for Leicester City football club in 2018.
The relentless support from Sabeco for sporting activities demonstrates the company’s 4Cs commitment to sustainable development and its corporate value that always values the spirit of solidarity, determination, and unrelenting efforts to achieve success and bring pride to Vietnam.
