Sport: Vanuatu businessman ends sponsorship of Amicale FC

10:51 am on 16 May 2013

Vanuatu businessman Andrew Leong is ending his sponsorship of Amicale FC and Vanuatu Football.

He says it was important for him to leave Amicale in the 'strongest possible shape.'

Amicale won the Vanuatu national league and made it to the semi finals of the Oceania Champions League, where they were eliminated by Waitakere United.

Leong says the quality of the Amicale squad, and the balance of ages within it, bodes well for continued success at the highest level.

Mr Leong has sponsored football in Vanuatu for the last 15 years, including various club and national teams, and says he will now concentrate on his business and family.
