Amateur club K12 win first Soccer League title

The K12 team of Hun Maneth, the eldest son of Prime Minister Hun Sen, won the inaugural Soccer League title on Sunday at Olympic Stadium after trumping Toul Kork 3-1 in the final.

The event, organised by Hun Many, youngest son of the premier and president of the Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia, saw 33 amateur teams from across the Kingdom enter the group stage on September 29.

Champions K12, who are more formally known as Association of Intellectual and Youth Volunteers, received a cheque for four million riel ($1,000) while the runners-up picked up three million riel.

Koh Kong, who beat Bayon TV 2-1 in the third-place playoff, went home with two million riel.

Sponsors Angkor Beer, Cambodia Beer and NagaWorld also awarded cash prizes to the top teams, as well as to the tournament’s individual stars.
