As a part of this mission, the Yamaha Motor group is involved in promoting and supporting the development of a variety of sports worldwide, not only for motorsports and marine sports but also rugby, football and more. The ASEAN market is of great importance for Yamaha Motor, and in cooperation with our group companies in each host country, we have been holding the YAMAHA ASEAN CUP RACE one-make motorcycle championship event since 2003, and the YAMAHA ASEAN CUP U-13 FOOTBALL tournament for selected teams with players under 13 years of age since 2008.
The aim of these events is to encourage friendship while raising competitive skills through serious competition between teams, players and riders from different countries and bring shared experiences of Kando* to people around the world as well as contribute to youth development and the spread of sporting activities.
* Kando is a Japanese word for the simultaneous feelings of deep satisfaction and intense excitement that we experience when we encounter something of exceptional value.
