The Football Federation of Cambodia has announced the appointment of Keo Sarath to the role of secretary general of the Federation.
The Federation had been without permanent secretary general since October 2016 with May Tola serving as acting-secretary general in the intervening period.
General Sao Sokha, president of the Federation, last week confirmed the appointment of Mr. Sarath who returns to the role of secretary general after leading the organisation as general director between 1999 to 2005. He was most recently the Federation’s development officer charged with overseeing youth training programs.
In February, the Football Federation of Cambodia’s executive committee hosted its Annual Congress electing National Military Police commander Gen. Sokha to a fourth term as President of Cambodian football’s organising body.
Gen. Sokha, Deputy Commander in Chief of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces and Commander of the Royal Gendarmerie of Cambodia General, was first elected in 2006.
Global football body FIFA announced it would provide a $1.25 million package to the FFC after a whistle-stop tour by FIFA president Gianni Infantino earlier this year.
The cash, which will be distributed over four years to the FFC, has been earmarked for the development of football fields and assorted youth development programmes.
