Crown in mini World Cup

PPCFC players with children from Chrey Thom
Phnom Penh Crown spent yesterday afternoon in Chrey Thom, Kandal province near the border with Vietnam, on another of their community engagement missions. The senior Crown players and coaches joined in with 160 local children, aged 12-15, and took part in a mini World Cup fun competition, as part of Sports for Social Change by Volunteers In Asia (VIA), an exchange involving coaches from USA, Vietnam and Cambodia, including Crown's own Academy assistant coach Sorn Srey Teav and Samy Seng from SALT Academy. The coaches have held football camps in Tra Vinh in Vietnam and Chrey Thom in Cambodia that involve football skills and life skills development, and yesterday was a fun element which included all of the Crown first-team squad, taking a break from their league championship battle, and children from Sampeau Meas Elementary and Sampeau Poun High Schools. We gave the schools some of the One World Futbols that Crown is distributing to schools and organisations across Cambodia. Everyone had a great time. Pictures by Sabay/Sovanna Kem of the activities.

Phnom Penh Crown are actively engaged in a series of community and socially responsible projects including HIV Prevention, fighting malnutrition, delivering One World Futbols to encourage everyone to play football across Cambodia and other activities.
