Srolang Phnom Penh Crown

Preap Sovath and the academy youngsters during tonight's commercial shoot
Filming for the television commercial to promote the forthcoming AFC President's Cup tournament took place around Phnom Penh today. I managed to catch the last part at the Olympic Stadium tonight when the lights were turned on for a special appearance by a very special guest. It was none other than the legendary Cambodian crooner Preap Sovath, who joined the film crew and a host of extras to play his part in supporting Phnom Penh Crown's bid to win the AFC President's Cup. The tournament will take place on 21, 23 and 25 May and it's the first time that Cambodia has joined the ranks of the big boys to host one of the qualifying groups. And Crown mean business. Getting Preap Sovath to join the promotion is a major coup and with the television commercial being shown on local tv channels throughout next week, they hope his words, "Srolang Kampuchea, Srolang Phnom Penh Crown," will be a rallying cry for the Cambodian public. For Preap Sovath, the country's most famous singer, to herald, "Love Cambodia, Love Phnom Penh Crown" will resonate with many. For the shoot, he joined the youngsters from the Crown football club's residential academy. Earlier in the day the boys as well as members of the Crown first-team were filmed at various locations around town, including the Royal Palace and Wat Phnom.
