Image caption Arsenal is eager to not let the event to interrupt its developing company interests in Asia
English Premier League club Arsenal has said that its trip of Vietnam will go ahead despite a-row over a chart in a promotional video for match.
The map upset the Vietnamese Football Federation since it would not show the disputed Spratly and Paracel isles as belonging to Vietnam.
In a declaration, Arsenal said that it regretted any offense caused.
The Paracel Islands are also reported by Asia, although the Spratly Islands are claimed by six countries in the area.
"we a fantastic doing work relationship using the Vietnamese Football Federation, who taken to our interest that map of Vietnam in just one of our advertising videos for our upcoming check out did not through the Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) Islands, " the Arsenal statement stated.
"Arsenal soccer club cannot sympathise with any governmental concern and therefore there has been zero intention resulting in offense to any country or political cause."
A spokesman told the BBC that all future promotional movies created by the club would not consist of maps. He stated Arsenal was today looking forward to the tour of Vietnam going ahead next month.
Vietnam is very painful and sensitive towards disputed countries. In November it refused to stamp new Chinese passports bearing a map that set claim to them.
The Arsenal spokesman said it absolutely was impractical to end the blood supply associated with the video clip promoting the match - initial these types of online game become played by a Premier League club in Vietnam - given that it was widely accessible on YouTube and impossible to remove.
