Football officials banned for life over corruption

One former and three current administrators at the Football Federation of Cambodia (FFC) have been banned from organizing professional sports for life after being accused of pocketing tournament sponsorship money.

A statement released by the FFC on Tuesday named the officials as the organization’s former deputy secretary-general May Tola, as well as senior current officials Chhaing Pisedh, Tuy Vicheika and Koul Sophearum.

It said the officials stood accused of “irregular” activities and corruption related to the organization of the annual Tiger Street Football event, an advertising-heavy competition sponsored by the Heineken International-owned Tiger Beer brand.
