SINGAPORE – Nikon Singapore Pte Ltd announces its support as one of the local sponsors in Vietnam for the upcoming Toyota Mekong Club Championship 2017 (TMCC). The tournament will see the top football teams from Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam, facing off each other to claim the title.

League 1 Representative (Vietnam) and Metfone Cambodian League Representative (Cambodia). The winning team from the semi-final on 17th December will then go onto the finals to meet the Toyota League Cup Representative (Thailand) on 23rd December and 6th January.
Toyota established TMCC in 2014 with the objective of enriching the community through football in Mekong countries. The championship began with only four countries - Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam, and was initially hosted only in Vietnam. In 2015, the tournament was expanded to include Thailand and with matches played in all participating countries.
In 2014, Vietnam was crowned the champions. In 2015, Thailand took home the trophy while Cambodia came in second. In 2016, Thailand won their second championship in a row despite breakthrough achievement by Laos and a total of 72,641 spectators attended the 5 matches. Given the extraordinary sportsmanship displayed by players and great enthusiasm demonstrated by fans, Toyota continued TMCC in 2017, and the matches will be broadcasted in 17 countries in Asia by FOX Sports Asia.
The Toyota Mekong Club Championship is a football tournament among teams from Mekong countries initiated by Toyota Motor Asia Pacific (TMAP) since 2014 under the Toyota Mekong Football Project (TMFP). The project is initiated by Toyota to show its support for the development of football in the Mekong countries.
