One World Futbol & PPCFC

The One World Futbol Project and Chevrolet joined forces with Phnom Penh Crown and SALT Academy to launch the One World Futbol into Cambodia today. The RSN Stadium was a hive of activity this morning as Phnom Penh Crown hosted a Football Festival and the launch of the One World Futbol Project in association with Chevrolet, here in Cambodia. A fantastic initiative designed to bring football and fun into millions of lives through a remarkable invention, the One World Futbol. With partners Chevrolet donating 5,800 of these indestructible balls to Cambodia, Crown and our great friends from the SALT Academy are joining forces to take these futbols around the country.

Today was the first step and 150 young children, mostly boys and some girls too, had a lot of fun with the Crown senior players, Academy and coaching staff at the club's training ground to kick it off. A massive thanks to the One World Project and Chevrolet for their partnership to bring joy to disadvantaged children all over the world, and especially here in Cambodia.

One of the world's largest car brands, Chevrolet have donated 1.5 million virtually indestructible footballs to children living in communities affected by war, natural disasters and extreme poverty. More than half a million children in 137 countries have so far benefited from the project in the last three years and now Cambodia is joining the list, with Chevrolet donating 5,800 One World Futbols all over the country through a partnership with Phnom Penh Crown and the SALT Academy.
The One World Futbol never goes flat and never needs a pump. The balls are made from a rugged material that cannot be punctured or crushed. Whether for use on the street, at the beach, at home or on the roughest landscapes in the world, the One World Futbol will last for years.

Taking part in today's football festival were teams from PSE, COLT, Prek Pra, Tiklork and others. All enjoyed playing with these fantastic One World Futbols and more mini-festivals will be held throughout March and April to distribute the balls around the country. Phnom Penh Crown and the SALT Academy are proud to be associated with this project where play and sport are used to foster social change.
