TVS Motor Company (TVSM), a leading global automaker in the two and three-wheeler segments, will partner with the Cambodian Premier League team – Angkor Tiger Football Club – from the city of Siem Reap, globally famous for the UNESCO World Heritage site marvel Angkor Wat temple.

Angkor Tiger Football Club currently plays in the top division Cambodian Premier League from the city of Siem Reap.  Angkor Tiger Football Club plays their matches at the Hanuman Stadium and has started construction of their own football stadium with a capacity for 5,000 spectators on a land holding of 50,000 square meters.

The Club is focused on developing young talents from the region and has promoted more than 8 players from their Academy to the Senior Team over the last 4 years. With technical partnerships with Japanese League 2 clubs, many young Cambodian talents are also sent to Japan for regular training and match time opportunities.
