"The first thing we will do is help Sai Gon FC develop and build a football academy. Second is making an economic and cultural bridge through football. This will be a chance for enterprises of both countries to cooperate," said Koji Ishii, International Business Director of Tokyo FC.

Sai Gon FC President Vu Tien Thanh expressed his belief that the new partnership will boost his club's development.

"Japanese football is advanced and similar in the style of play as Vietnamese football, with emphasis on skill, possession and flexible team work. Therefore Vietnamese players will easily adapt and absorb the way they play football. That's why we want to partner up with Tokyo FC to improve our players in particular and young Vietnamese players in general," Thanh said.

For 2020, Sai Gon FC has set three targets: finish the season as a top three V. League 1 team, reach the National Cup semifinals, and attract 100,000 fans come to watch its games. The club finished fifth in 2019 V. League 1 season.
