ACLEDA Bank workers battle it out on pitches in league

The third season of the ACLEDA Bank Football League kicked off yesterday with 41 teams comprised solely of the financial institution’s employees nationwide vying for glory.

The teams have been split into eight groups for the preliminary stage with the top two from each bracket progressing to a knockout phase, which culminates in the grand final on November 10.

Tournament winners will receive 1.5 million riel (US$376), while the runners-up will bank 800,000 riel, 500,000 riel for third and 400,000 for fourth. One team will also collect 600,000 riel for the Fair Play award.
