Crown, Naga set for midweek showdown

Today’s Metfone C-League fixture sees reigning champions Phnom Penh Crown come up against arch-rivals Naga Corp, the only other club in the 10-team league to have lifted the coveted trophy.

Khemara Keila, who won the Football Federation of Cambodia sanctioned top-tier league in its first two editions (2005 and 2006), disbanded last year due to financial difficulties.

Three-time league winners Crown clinched the title last year ahead of Naga, who have triumphed twice, despite the latter beating them 4-0 before drawing 3-3 during the season.

Both sides are sponsored by casino resorts. Midfielder Sun Sopanha and former Crown captain Thul Sothearith are set to face their past employers having served out suspensions for their parts in fights during the 2011 AFC President’s Cup final in Taiwan.

The match today kicks off at Olympic Stadium at 3pm.
