Sport in Cambodia

Posted by Lawoat on 20/7/2009 at 14:02

Hi all,


I was just wondering if anyone has experience in going to sport games in Cambodia?

- Do they have a soccer league?
- Are there any traditional Cambodian sports (I presume some form of martial arts??)
- Has anyone visited games before?
- I assume the bigger cities PP and SR would have sport venues?
-...

Thanks for the help!

I'm also interested in trying to take in some of the local events when I'm in PP or Siem Reap. This site: http://ladypenh.com has a schedule of events in PP but only goes about a week out. They have both soccer and Khmer Kickboxing on there.

I'm curious how easy it would be for a westerner to attend a kickboxing match? I assume I could just buy tickets at the door?
