The offer of support for the Cambodian participants at the Games came from Greg Harney, director of Cartan Global, at a meeting with Chamroeun and NOCC adviser Ken Gadaffi on the sidelines of the Association of National Olympic Committees General Assembly in Prague.

Cartan Global, the sports division of the century-old Cartan Tours, has a contract with the NOCC as authorised ticket resellers for the Pyeounchang 2018 Winter Olympics and Tokyo 2020, and as part of the contract has pledged to help with the Cambodian team’s preparation.

“We are working with ADK to see which areas in Japan to get support for the team preparation. We hope to find support for the team and we look towards 2019 to start early,” Harney told Chamroeun.

Cartan is also considering opportunities through its partner company Global Sports Management to seek sponsors for the 2023 SEA Games, which Cambodia is all set to host.
