Angkor beer helps support national student games

The 2014 National College and Technical Institute Championships, which began on Monday, has been boosted by sponsorship from Angkor beer company.

The deal has been brokered thanks to the Minister of Education, Youth, and Sport Dr Hang Chuon Naron, who has a policy of promoting sport between civil and government organisations.

“Through help from the Dr Hang Chuon Naron, we’ve got strong support from the Angkor Beer Company, including 400 T-shirts to participations, cash prizes which total nearly the same amount as the Ministry’s prize fund, drinking water and kit for football players,” National Olympic Committee of Cambodia secretary-general Vath Chamroeun said during the opening ceremony on Monday.

“This support is very valuable as only the ministry is funding [the Games].”
