In Cambodian League 1, football clubs are all professional clubs. The salaries are 2 to 10 times the average monthly income per capita (+ - $120), depending on the level of players and clubs. Just look at Phnom Penh Crown's squad to notice that his first team is made up of names of well-known players, or even stars at the national level. This necessarily implies higher wages. We can estimate, but we cannot say that the monthly wages are between 500 and $1200.
