I am always satisfied and happy to work with ThaiBev to develop youth football because I see their sincerity and devotion. ThaiBev understands and operates systematically and most importantly, unceasingly, which is important to develop football as a sustainable sport…I do not wish to waste anyone’s time and budget without devotion. Being a player is likewise. It is about how to always meet the standard. If you are a player, you must have discipline, devotion to practice, an understanding of the game, good teamwork, and high goals. Everyone can find success that way.

Captain, Female Thai National Volleyball Team
For me, being a volleyball player has helped me learn about losing and winning, being part of a team, helping and supporting each other, and most important, having friendships with my colleagues. I want to pass on all my experiences to my juniors and help them become professional players. This is similar to the opportunity I had from elders and from ThaiBev, which has continuously supported and promoted Thai volleyball.
