Sports brand Vector X has taken on board Indiaâs women football star Dalima Chhibber as its new brand ambassador. Vector X, who already has Indian football legend Bhaichung Bhutia as the face of the brand, will now also be represented by the most sought-after Indian woman footballer of the current time. The contract with the star Indian left-back will continue till April 2020.
Mohit Arora, Marketing manager at Soccer International, said, âIt is a moment of pride for us. Dalima is one of the most exciting and sought-after womenâs footballer in the country. When we saw her playing, we knew that her dynamism and youthful energy would be a perfect fit for our brand and we wanted to make sure we can help her in growing further in whatever manner possible. She embodies the very essence of Vector X, i.e. âThe Winning Spiritâ.â
Chhibber joined the Indian National Womenâs team at the age of 19. She has grown from a young and promising football talent to someone who has been a mainstay in the team since 2016. Known for her ability to convert long distance set-piece opportunities, the now 21-year-old played a key role in Indiaâs 5th SAFF Womenâs Championship title. Owing to her performances in the recent past, Chhibber was also signed by Hero Indian Womenâs League team, Gokulam Kerala FC. As Captain of the team, she helped them reach the semi-finals of the tournament, notching up some of the best performances of the season.
âI am overwhelmed by the fact that a brand like Vector X has shown faith in me and chose me as the evangelist for their brand. As a brand that has already been helping so many footballers, associations and clubs across the country, I strongly believe their support is going to help me achieve new heights on the training pitch. I am really looking forward to my time with the Vector X family. More and more corporates should follow Vector X and come up to support Womenâs football in the country, especially given that we are the hosts of the FIFA U-17 Womenâs World Cup next year,â said Indian National Womenâs team footballer, Dalima Chhibber.
Apart from sports such as basketball, swimming, racket sports and volleyball, Vector X is already a mainstay in the field of football sponsoring the kits for clubs such as Hero I-League team-TRAU FC, Hero Indian Womenâs League team - Bangalore United FC, football associations like the Sikkim Football Association and Mumbai District Football Association. They also hold the kit sponsorship rights for the Jammu and Kashmir State Championship and Bhaichung Bhutia Football School.
