The Ian Thompson Memorial reflects the annual fundraising efforts of 30 friends, their wives and families who raise funds for various causes around the world.
The ISF, in partnership with the Football Federation of Cambodia, plays a key role in providing grassroots footballing opportunities to some of Cambodia’s most disadvantaged children.
The program has grown from 50 players in 2006 to around 3,800 in 2017, including deaf and hearing impaired players and players with intellectual disabilities.
