The TMV and the Viet Nam Professional Football Company (VPF) held the contract signing ceremony in Ha Noi, for an undisclosed funding amount.
The tournament will be the Toyota V. League 2016 under the new deal.
TMV President Yoshihisa Maruta said, "This year, with a desire to contribute more to the nation, we continue to support the league and hope to push it to a higher level". "We record VPF's effort and will co-operate closely with them to present beautiful and competitive matches to local fans, who, we believe, would strongly back the tournament and players."
Toyota has backed different sports activities in Viet Nam for years.
The V. League will kick off on February 20 nationwide with 14 clubs competing in 182 matches through 26 rounds.
The winner will receive VND3 billion (US$133,000) while the runner-up pockets half that amount./.
