Toyota To Host Toyota Mekong Club Championship 2016
Toyota established TMCC in 2014 with the objective of enriching the community through football in Mekong countries. The championship started with only 4 countries - Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam - and the tournament was hosted only in Vietnam. Last year’s tournament was expanded to include Thailand with matches played in all participating countries. In 2014, Vietnam was crowned the champions. Last year, Thailand took home the trophy while Cambodia came in second. Given the extraordinary sportsmanship displayed by players and great enthusiasm demonstrated by fans, Toyota has decided to continue TMCC in 2016.
Currently Toyota is planning to hold the tournament from November 2016 to January 2017. The tournament will feature winning teams from the domestic leagues of Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam. More details will be announced at the official press conference this coming October.
TMCC began with the idea of connecting the passion and energy of football with Toyota’s constant pursuit to bring ‘ever better’ cars to customers. Bringing sustainable, innovative and exciting solutions to every country has been a key focus for Toyota. This year, Toyota continues to aim to go beyond delivering better cars and become a ‘Best Partner’ together with the communities of Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam, making football accessible to the young and old, aspiring football players, as well as sports fans.
