Statement in full
“To everyone involved with SOLTILO Angkor FC,
We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the fans, supporters, sponsors, and all those who have supported our club throughout the years since 2017. Your support and encouragement have been invaluable to us.
Unfortunately, we find ourselves in a difficult financial situation, which has led us to make the tough decision to withdraw from the business. We have carefully considered our options until the end, but the financial challenges have proven insurmountable, leaving us no choice but to take this course of action.
This decision weighs heavily on us, and we will never forget the gratitude we owe to the players, staff, and supporters. It is through your passion and support that we have been able to create an incredible stage for football.
Although our club will cease its operations and not embark on a new journey, our memories will endure forever. We hope that the players will continue to shine in their new teams, and the supporters will channel their passionate energy into another club.
Once again, we extend our heartfelt appreciation to everyone involved with us. We are grateful for your support and look forward to embracing the future ahead for all of Cambodian football.
SOLTILO Angkor FC”
