PHNOM PENH, April 19 (Xinhua) -- Cambodia has decided to provide free food and accommodation for all athletes and sports delegates in the upcoming 32nd Southeast Asian (SEA) Games, according to a Cambodia SEA Games Organizing Committee (CAMSOC) news release on Wednesday.

CAMSOC's secretary-general Vath Chamroeun said that on the advice of Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen, all athletes and sports delegates would no longer be required to pay 50 U.S. dollars per person per day for food and accommodation fees.

"This is a highly exceptional and unprecedented decision in the history of SEA Games," he said.

Last month, CAMSOC also announced plans to provide free tickets for all spectators and free live broadcast rights for local and foreign TV networks.

Cambodia will host the SEA Games for the first time in 64 years from May 5 to 17. More than 11,000 athletes and sports delegates from Southeast Asian countries are expected to participate in the Games.

According to CAMSOC, the Games will feature athletes competing in 37 sports with 581 disciplines.

The Morodok Techo National Stadium, in a northern suburb of the capital Phnom Penh, will be the centerpiece venue for official opening and closing ceremonies, as well as tournaments. Enditem
