This week, a class of Vietnamese students visited the Weserstadion and the WUSEUM. The students thoroughly enjoyed their time in Bremen, showing enthusiasm for Werder throughout. “The pupils love football and would love to come back,” says teacher Van Do.

The 35-year-old teaches German, alongside other subjects, at the Chuyen Ngoai Ngu School in Hanoi. German is the number one foreign language among her pupils. For several years, eleventh-graders at the school had been travelling to Hamburg for three-week exchanges, but SV Werder has managed to lure them 60 miles to the west.


“People love European football”

The trip was organised as part of Werder’s internationalisation activities in Vietnam. A delegation from the club visited the school in 2023, and the connections forged will now be strengthened by the return visit by the pupils. “Many of them are in the stadium for the first time, including me. I’m amazed at how many rooms, stalls and pathways there are here,” says Van Do to WERDER.DE.

Football is very important for Van Do and her pupils. “People love European football. The European Championship is a big deal not just for the students here on exchange, but also the ones back home in Vietnam.” For almost a year now, Werder has been working to turn that enthusiasm for football into enthusiasm for the club and its home city – and if the 25 pupils who visited this week are anything to go by, it seems to be working.
