Corporate sides line up for league kick off

The PP Premier League, a 5-a-side corporate football competition, is set to kick off its the inaugural edition Tuesday night from 7pm at the 3G playing field.

Eight teams have signed up to compete: ACE, Cellcard, CTN/MyTV, Infinity, NagaWorld, Wing, Vattanac Properties and Schindler.

“It really is great to get some of the biggest companies in Phnom Penh vying to be winners of this prestigious tournament,” Jimmy Campbell, managing director of league organisers Excel Events, told the Post.

“It gives the players an opportunity to represent their companies and play in a friendly and competitive atmosphere.

“The teams competing are already sending messages to each other on social media saying how excited they are to be involved in the PP Premier League. We plan for this to be an annual event and hope it grows with more teams next year.”

Sides will face each other once during the preliminary phase. The top four will then progress to semifinal knockout rounds of the PP Premier Trophy, while the bottom four teams will vie for the Community Cup.

All teams will be presented with participation awards, with winners collecting the trophy and gold medals. Other prizes will be a runners-up trophy with silver medals, and bronze medals for third place.

Top goal scorer, best player and a fair play award will also be up for grabs, according to the organisers.

CTN will broadcast a weekly round-up of the action and results.
