The National Olympic Stadium in Cambodia’s Phnom Penh is set to undergo a major renovation which will help the venue meet the standards set by FIFA and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC).
The Phnom Penh Olympic Stadium has a capacity of 50,000 and currently hosts Cambodia national team’s international football matches, including their 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers, as well as domestic and continental matches at club level.
However, with Cambodia set to host the 2023 Southeast Asian Games, the authorities are looking to redevelop the arena to meet FIFA and AFC requirements.
One of the major challenges the stadium face is the lack of seating on most of the stands.
