Preparation & World AIDS Day

A view of today's red v blues match
Phnom Penh Crown will be heading for China next Wednesday for the Yunnan-Asean Tournament and played an internal match at RSN this afternoon. With the first-team squad and a number of Academy players mixed together, the red team beat the blues 9-3. George Bisan scored 4, Mat Sakrovy 2, Va Sokthorn 2 and a cracker from Chhuot Senteang, with Hong Pheng, Khim Borey and Sraing Titchhy scoring for the blues. The trip to China promises to be an interesting one, with Crown at the early stages of their pre-season preparation, and they will come up against some of the best teams in the region. The tournament will take place in Mangshi City in Dehong prefecture, in southwestern Yunnan province.
Tomorrow afternoon at 3pm, Phnom Penh Crown will welcome 120 children to the RSN Stadium to mark World AIDS Day 2014, which will be observed worldwide on 1 December, to bring attention to the global HIV/AIDS epidemic. It is dedicated to raise awareness about HIV, commemorate those who have died from HIV-related complications and to recognize the resiliency and gather support for those living with and affected by HIV. According to the UNAIDS report on the global AIDS epidemic 2013, 1.6 million people have died of AIDS-related illnesses and 35.3 million people are living with HIV. Crown have joined forces with SALT Academy, Asian Development Bank, AFC and UNAIDS for tomorrow's event. Joining our Academy boys, will be youngsters from our community football teams, and two schools in Phnom Penh, Day Star and Sovannaphumi, to mark the day.

Now it begins to look like a stadium (albeit a high school one). Those roofs on the far side are perfect for solar panels.
