Who are Next Step FC?
Next Step FC were founded as a developmental side, before turning professional in 2022. Their first season in the CPL was not exactly a huge success, with them coming 11th out of 12, but they not only survived the season, but did so with YPT on their arms.
Not only that, but I personally got to try my hand at football management, although this was also resulted in a loss.

Next Step FC going into 2023-24
So with 2022 being put down to the learning curve, preparations for 2023-24 have been going swimmingly both on and off the pitch, with the club making a number of key signings, as well as signing commercial deals.
This has included a kit sponsorship deal with Desportol, as well as a media partnership deal with BPVE, as well as a slew of other deals, which of course includes Young Pioneer Tours.
You can read about the deal with BPVE here.
Speaking about the deal Coach Charlie Pomroy stated “YPT were one of the first companies to support us and stuck with us during the hard times. We are really pleased to have them on board for the upcoming season and hope that it coincides with success on the pitch as well”.
YPT could not agree more! And it should be noted that YPT also offer tours to Cambodia, which of course could include watching Next Step FC live!
