HCM City – Mytel, Viettel’s Myanmar subsidiary, won the 2016 Viettel World Cup by beating Viettel Hà Nội 3 – 0 in the final, and with it prize money of US$10,000.

The final round of the event begun in Hà Nội on October 4 and 34 matches were played out.

Around 100 teams had competed in the qualifying round three months ago and 17 teams from 11 countries on three continents qualified for the final round.

The tournament, organised by the military-run company, is held every two years for all its subsidiaries world-wide.

“The event offers a chance to bring together all of Viettel’s brands in the world for a united activity,” Hoàng Sơn, deputy general director of Viettel, said.

“It aims to connect Viettel’s officers in both domestic and international markets closely with each other.”

Mytel is a newcomer, with Viettel announcing only last March plans to invest US$1.5 billion in Myanmar. – VNS
