Boeung Ket break ground on stadium in Kampong Cham

Work has commenced on Boeung Ket Rubber Field’s new stadium in their home province of Kampong Cham, a report on their official website stated last week.

According to team manager Be Makara, all efforts will be made to have the facility ready by the end of January next year, shortly after the start of the new Metfone C-League season.

The club’s main sponsor Long Sreng, an international investment firm that owns rubber plantations, will have exclusive naming rights to the ground.

The manager also noted that the 2012 league champions had already resurfaced the pitch of the Kampong Cham Stadium only for the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport to terminate their contract and force a move to the new location 10 kilometres out of town.
