Organizers Look to Legacy of SEA Games

Legacy of SEA Games

Organizers for the 2023 SEA Games in Cambodia have stated that while it might not be the best run in Asia, it would still leave a legacy, according to Vath Chamroeun, secretary-general of the Cambodia SEA Games Organizing Committee (CAMSOC).

The comments came at a signing ceremony where seven new sponsors for the games were signed up.

Speaking to attendees he stated ““We know that Cambodia’s technological standards don’t meet those of other countries,”, with him further adding that Cambodians wanted to use the games to “transform” the image of the country.

What are the current issues?

There have been controversies related to the naming of various events, as well as even the cost of broadcasting rights, but more importantly some questions have been asked if everything will be “ready” on time.

This includes various stadia, as well as the accommodation for athletes. Although it should be noted that were Cambodia to have issues in this area, it would be far from the first hosts to have gone through this.

At the games in the Philippines the Cambodian football team notoriously did not have accommodation the night before their first match.
