Krousar boys boss ISF-Barclays tourney for the deaf

Teams from Krousar Thmey dominated the one-day ISF-Barclays football tournament for deaf and hearing impaired players at the ISF ground on Sunday.

While the Battambang chapter girls edged out the Deaf Development Programme team from Phnom Penh 1-0 in the final, the all-Krousar Thmey showdown in the boys section was claimed by the organisation’s third string, which prevailed over the second side 4-2 in a penalty shootout.

Sixteen teams from Phnom Penh, Battambang, Kampot and Kampong Cham took part in the event organised by Indochina Starfish Foundation (ISF).

These activities were funded by FIFA Football for Hope (FFH), which has named ISF to run the Sports for All Abilities program.

“We’re able to double our activities again this year for the players in this program thanks to the FFH funding,” ISF football program manager Yin Samedy told the Post.

“The passion these players display and the joy they express for being included is overwhelming. This tournament exemplified the spirit of sport for development and highlighted the successful integration of disabilities into our program.”
