The construction of the SEA Games village has been completed and the facility was formally inaugurated on April 20, ready to receive the sporting delegates who are set attend the SEA Games-ASEAN Para Games in early May and June.
Defence Minister Tea Banh, who also heads the national organising committees for the SEA Games and ASEAN Para Games (CAMSOC-CAMAPGOC), presided over the inauguration of the village, near Morodok Techo National Stadium in the capital’s Chroy Changvar district.
Tea Banh said at the function no further construction was required, barring a small amount of sanitation work.
He assured the coming guests that as hosts, Cambodia has prepared comfortable accommodation and healthy nutritious food.
The Kingdom is set to offer a warm welcome,” he said.
Construction of the village began in 2020, and was tendered to World Bridge Sport Village.
The village, which contains 3,700 beds, will accommodate athletes, officials, referees and deputy chiefs of missions who are participating in 32nd SEA Games and the 12the ASEAN Para Games events at the Moradok Techo National Stadium.
Sporting delegates who are competing at other venues, such as the Olympic Stadium or other venues in Phnom Penh, will be accommodated at eleven hotels which are nearer to their sporting venues.
