Triumphant Metfone C-League champions Phnom Penh Crown FC now shift focus to their junior ranks in hosting their inaugural international youth football tournament this weekend at the RSN Stadium field in Tuol Kork.

The competition, named the First State Gold Investment Cup, will see two teams from the PPCFC Elite Football Academy line up against visiting sides from Ho Chi Minh City and Singapore as well as Kampong Chhnang’s Cambodia Foundation Organisation, who were recently crowned U13 Festival of Football Champions of Cambodia. The Vietnamese teams include the youth sides of Ho Chi Minh City FC and Hoa Lu FC, while the Singaporean squad hails from the acclaimed International Soccer Academy.

Round-robin matches between the six teams will take place tomorrow from 1pm, after which the ranked sides will be paired off in finals on Sunday morning from 10am to decide the overall standings.
TVK is slated to screen live action from Sunday’s finals.

Matches are seven-a-side, played on pitches of 45 x 35 metres, and all players must be born after January 1, 1998.
