Launching from 5th to 27th June, League Cup 2021 is bringing together eight teams from Cambodia’s two most prestigious football championships, Metfone Cambodian League and Cambodian League 2. Joined by the big five of Cambodian football, ISI Dangkor Senchey will be competing against Phnom Penh Crown, Boeung Ket and Visakha.

With strict COVID-19 preventative measures and guidelines in place, only essential staff, coaches and players who have tested negative the day before each game can attend the matches.

With 90% of their players vaccinated, ISI Dangkor Senchey is thrilled to be invited by CNCC to join their new football cup.

“We are all happy to join League Cup as it will help us prepare for the upcoming Cambodian League 2,” said John Botioba, ISI Dangkor Senchey Head Coach. “We will approach it with serenity and determination to refresh our minds and become competitive again after these quiet months. The competition results are not as important to us as growing strong together as a team,” he added.

After becoming a member of Cambodian League 2 in 2020, ISI Dangkor Senchey has made a name for themselves on the professional football field. However, ISI Dangkor Senchey is more than a football club. Established by our KMH Foundation, they’ve become a gateway to professional football in Cambodia and are helping build a better living through sports.

“In football, nothing is impossible,” said John. “To become a professional, you must consistently work hard and be disciplined. You have a desire, you persevere. You never give up as a team. That’s the ingredient that helps us continue to accomplish our dreams,” John continued.
