"The investment of big enterprises such as FLC and Bamboo Airways in clubs has brought a breath of fresh air to Vietnamese volleyball. The atmosphere of transferring players has changed. What makes us delighted is that volleyball athletes will be able to live on income from their profession, and will even reach the income levels of football players in the coming time. In case the clubs receive adequate attention and sponsorship, we will have better athletes to prepare for the upcoming SEA Games.
