In Brief: U23 team collect prize

The Cambodian U23 National team collected US$10,000 Wednesday at the Olympic Stadium, a result of the monies promised for positive results from the 2009 SEA Games in Vientiane.

Half of the money came from Phnom Penh Governor Kep Chuktema, while the remaining $5,000 was given by local phone company Metfone, which earlier in the year had granted $1.5 million towards the construction of a national football centre near Takeo.
