Football is FUN

Keeping your eye on the ball when heading
More pictures from this afternoon's Festival of Football at Phnom Penh Crown's RSN Stadium. It was great to see so many children from the surrounding area coming along to join in the fun, both boys and girls. This is one of Crown's goals, to engage the local community, to make them feel part of the football club and to become players or fans of the future. In the future, the Crown players and staff intend to make regular visits to local schools to involve them in skills training and to generate enthusiasm and passion for the game. There's nothing better than playing the game to fall in love with it. We'll also host similar events to this afternoon's festival and join other community activities to raise the club's profile.
