SEA Games stadium model unveiled at NOCC headquarters

As a symbol of the Kingdom’s massive drive towards hosting of 2023 SEA Games, the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia has unveiled a large architectural model of the Morodok Decho National Sports Complex at its headquarters.

The Morodok Decho National Sports Complex will hold the opening and closing ceremonies on a grand scale, and a host of Games events.

Prime Minister Hun Sen performed the traditional groundbreaking last April to pave the way for the construction of the second phase of the complex, which is expected to be completed in the next 40 months to allow a near two-year lead-up to the Games the Kingdom will be hosting for the first time in its history.

Being built on a sprawling 94-hectare site in Prek Tasek Sangkat in Russey Keo district, the main stadium will occupy nine hectares and hold up to 100,000 spectators.

The $157 million ultra-modern multi-purpose Olympic-standard facility will be replete with a football pitch, running track, multiple six-storey office blocks, four eight-storey athletes’ quarters, including 400 rooms and two huge dining halls, six different arenas and a weight training gym.

The completed first phase includes a state of-the-art indoor arena and international-standard aquatics facility comprising an Olympic swimming pool, a warm-up pool and a platform diving pool.

The facility is well equipped to handle water polo and synchronised swimming.
