Cambodian Basketball League put on hold

Tomorrow’s scheduled launch of the much-publicised Cambodian Basketball League at the Old Stadium has been cancelled, with the competition put on hold for a few weeks as organisers prepare to shift the event to the newly built Beeline Arena located on the Chhroy Changvar peninsula.

The change of venue followed a partnership deal between the CBL and Banzai, a Phnom Penh-based events organisation company which wholly owns the Beeline Arena.

“We are waiting for the hoops and other equipment to be installed at the arena.

At this stage we are looking at a possible launch in mid July,” Curran Hendry, one of the three co-founders of CBL, told the Post yesterday.

“We are happy to stage the entire season in our facility” said Charles Julliard, a spokesman for Banzai. Renovation work at the Olympic Stadium had forced the CBL to hurriedly change its initial plans to hold the season there and move over to the Old Stadium.
