PPCFC players and schoolboys enjoying their afternoon
Phnom Penh Crown undertook their latest community engagement project at
3G this afternoon, as they joined forces with Chevrolet and SALT Academy
to officially launch the One World Futbol into Cambodia. Its the second
event they've held but this was the 'official' one - which will see
Chevrolet donate 5,800 of these nearly indestructible futbols to schools
and organisations around Cambodia, including 15 schools in Phnom Penh.
The distribution of the futbols will be through Crown and the SALT
Academy, who operate out of Battambang. For today's event, two
elementary schools in Phnom Penh supplied 80 young boys to play with the
futbols, aided and abetted by the whole of the Phnom Penh Crown senior
squad. After the press conference, the boys got down to playing the
games and prizes were awarded to the top five teams in each of the two
groups. Everyone had fun thanks to the organisation by the Crown staff
and the local Chevrolet dealership.
