The AFFMitsubishiElectricCup2022 Trophy Tour has kicked off on 24 September in Bangkok, Thailand. And this year, together with AFF, Mitsubishi Electric has launched a CSR program to give back to the local communities through football. Taking place alongside the Trophy Tour, the Football Clinics will provide children from various charity organizations with a fun-filled day of learning from and playing with local football legends.
Thai football legends Pipob On-Mo and Therdsak Chaiman were our coaches in Bangkok and together with Mitsubishi Electric employees who were assistant coaches at the clinics, they spent an enjoyable morning with children from the Right To Play Thailand Foundation.
These CSR football clinics are really important to Mitsubishi Electric as we believe this is a great opportunity for children to learn football techniques from their local heroes, but more importantly, inspire them to dream big in the future. The next trophy tour and football clinic will be held in Singapore.
Together, we can build better.
AFF President, Major General Khiev Sameth said, “We are thrilled to see the return of the AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup Trophy Tour in Bangkok and it was amazing seeing how excited the Thai fans were. The crowd has embraced the festivities around the Trophy Tour and this has definitely reignited their passion for their national team in the lead up to the tournament in December.”
Kunihiko Seki, Corporate Executive and Chief Representative Asia Pacific Region of Mitsubishi Electric Corporation said, “We are delighted to launch the AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup Football Clinic in Bangkok. It brings a smile to my face to see the joy and excitement of the children as they learnt life-long skills from their football heroes and enjoyed the company of their friends. This is exactly as we envisaged when we came on board as the tournament’s title sponsor – to contribute and enrich the lives of the communities through the event and build a better future together.”
The next stop of the Trophy Tour and Football Clinic will take place in Singapore on 15 October. The Trophy Tour will take place at Kallang Wave Mall at the Singapore Sports Hub, while the Football Clinic will be conducted at Jalan Besar Stadium in partnership with the Football Association of Singapore.
