The Cambodian Volleyball Federation has received a smash in the right direction thanks to 40 million riels (US$9,913) towards the prize fund for their flagship event, the 2012 Leo Cup National Championships.
Boonrawd Trading, who import Thai beverage Leo Beer, and CP & Trading International Co, Ltd, have donated the sum to help boost volleyball in the Kingdom.
The tournament will run from May 12 to July 14, with five centres – including Phnom Penh, Battambang, Siem Reap, Kampong Cham and Sihanoukville – hosting group stage games before qualifiers congregate at Olympic Stadium for the knockout rounds.
104 men’s teams from nationwide clubs and associations are slated to participate.
