Manchester City extends deal with Vietnamese bank
Manchester City have extended its partnership with Saigon Hanoi Commercial Joint Stock Bank (SHB).
The Vietnamese Retail Bank will therefore continue as the club's Official Affinity Card Partner in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.
The original partnership saw the launch of the first-ever Manchester City Debit Card in the region.
As part of the multi-year renewal, the club will also launch a co-branded SHB-ManCity Visa Credit card, encompassing a variety of club experiences.
Damian Willoughby, senior vice-president of Partnerships, City Football Group, said: “Our fan base in South East Asia includes some of the most enthusiastic Manchester City supporters in the world and their passion for football is inspiring. In partnership with SHB, we look to continue offering them greater opportunities to connect with the club and sport they love.”
Mr. Nguyen Van Le, CEO of Saigon Hanoi Commercial Joint Stock Bank, added: “Our partnership with Manchester City, a popular global brand with a strong fan base across the region, has enabled SHB to position itself as a leading commercial bank in Vietnam."
Last summer, City toured Vietnam and played the Vietnamese national team in front of 40,000 at My Dinh National Stadium in Hanoi.
