The Cambodia SEAGAMES Organizing Committee (CAMSOC) officiated Cellcard’s Tier 1 sponsorship, naming Cellcard as the Exclusive Telecom Partner of the CAMBODIA 2023 GAMES which consist of the 32nd SEAGAMES, and the 12th PARA GAMES.
The signing ceremony comes as part of Cellcard’s strategic direction to elevate the brand with a re-energized focus on its network performance and the brand’s core purpose of connecting people and communities.
“Our sponsorship towards the 32nd SEAGAMES and 12th PARA GAMES makes perfect brand sense for Cellcard and couldn’t come at a better time. Last year was a milestone year for Cellcard as the brand celebrated its 25th anniversary cementing its place as an immovable force in Cambodia’s telecom industry. It is just fitting for a historic brand with such a long history and heritage in Cambodia to play an active role in the hosting of a historic event such as the CAMBODIA 2023 GAMES. As we focus our energies on the core of our business and our purpose, our support towards the CAMBODIA 2023 GAMES will allow us to demonstrate our Proudly Khmer stand in a more tangible way, as well as the strength of our network as we enable the connectivity throughout the GAMES to ensure that every Cambodian is able to witness and participate in this momentous event as a unified nation.” — Cellcard CEO Simon Perkins.
Cellcard’s sponsorship is valued at $1.8M which is comprised of cash sponsorship, a $400K network enhancement initiative at the Morodok Techo Stadium, and connectivity support for over 20,000 volunteers, among other things.
The signing ceremony was held on March 14, 2023, at the office of the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia (NOCC), presided over by Cellcard CEO Simon Perkins and H.E. Vath Camroeun, secretary-general of the Cambodia SEA Games Organizing Committee and National Olympic Committee of Cambodia.
“On behalf of the NOCC, I am very proud to have Cellcard as a Tier 1 sponsor to the CAMBODIA 2023 GAMES. There is not much time before the Seagames, and much work to do. Cellcard’s support will provide the connectivity for the all the event venues, the athletes and our guests. The opening program is well underway and will be a prestigious event with the attendance of numerous heads of states across the region. Many activities are being planned and we are very excited to start working together with Cellcard as the exclusive telecom partner of the CAMBODIA 2023 GAMES.” – H.E. Vath Chamroeun
