3 cool things with Ung Chamreoun and Dan Riley




Best Internet site for Cambodian sports?


I didn’t see any good sites for Cambodian sports so that’s why I created a personal blog on football in July 2008; www.roubroum.blogspot.com. With this blog I have made many contacts with other football bloggers throughout the world, especially in the ASEAN region, where we link to each other’s sites. For the international sports, I always check BBC Football, Football.fr, Arsenal.com and Livescore. Andy Brouwer’s blogsite, www.andybrouwer.co.uk/blog, has been going for a long time and features his regular updates about Cambodian football, especially the national team.

Watch sports on TV?
I watch sports at home and anywhere now that cable TV carries a lot more sports than it used to. My favorite TV stations are ESPN, Star Sports and PPCTV (Cambodian cable TV). For the latest sporting results, I watch Channel News Asia. There are a number of places around town with flatscreen TVs and satellite feeds for more obscure games. At Gym Bar you can request to have games taped and then get them burned onto a DVD, or just watch the game at the bar.

Best place to watch sport live
Olympic Stadium is the best place to watch Cambodian sport, especially the two big events of Cambodian football: the Cambodian League and the Hun Sen Cup. There are also five Metfone C-League matches played there each week (two on Saturday, two on Sunday, one on Wednesday) showcasing the best of the Kingdom’s footballing talent. The main stand is shaded from the scorching sun and pouring rain, and a day’s entrance is only US$1. Cup finals and international matches attract the largest crowds, and the atmosphere is usually lively and entertaining.
