Festival of Football held for U13 youth teams

An opening ceremony for the second edition of the U13 Festival of Football,  organised by the Football Federation of Cambodia, was held yesterday morning at the Military Police training field in Kambol commune, on the outskirts of Phnom Penh, and presided over by FFC president Sao Sokha. During the week-long tournament,  32 youth teams  in eight groups will play matches at the Military Police field and the nearby National Football Center, in Chaeng Maeng commune. FFC spokesman and deputy general secretary May Tola said the main goal of hosting the event was to attract more youngsters to play football. “[The competition is] not  to find champions  … The participants will receive sports equipment and educational materials,” he said.
