AIA-ISF Youth League – Latest results
The AIA-ISF Youth League 2018/19 launched on 9 December 2018 for a new, 6-month season. The league is a joint effort between ISF and AIA (Cambodia) Life Insurance Plc (“AIA Cambodia”) with technical support from AIA’s Global Principal Partner Tottenham Hotspur Football Club (“Spurs”).
The league offers boys and girls from underprivileged backgrounds, as well as players with physical and intellectual disabilities, the rare opportunity to play football in a safe environment, with the ultimate aim of helping them live healthier, longer and better lives.
The opportunity to engage in competitive football, and to even access playing fields, is limited for most Cambodian children, especially those who are from an underprivileged background. Typically, girls have less access than boys, and access for disabled children is almost non-existent. Recognising these facts and aligning their commitment towards a healthier Cambodia, ISF and AIA are embarking on their second year of partnership, using football to push for progress and inclusion.
Providing weekly coaching and tournaments to 1,455 players around Phnom Penh, the annual league comprises six divisions of girls’ and boys’ teams in the under-10, under-14 and under-18 age ranges, along with deaf and hearing-impaired teams. Weekly match results can be found below. For photos check the ISF Sports Ground Facebook Page. Matches usually take place every Sunday at the ISF Sports Ground and all are welcome to attend.
