Rana Asif Maqsood, hockey coach of the Cambodian team, told the Post yesterday that the event returns from a ten-year hiatus and used to feature participation of sides from Thailand, Japan, Pakistan, India and China.

The competition will have each team playing each once in games of 25-minute halves with the top team claiming the trophy, awarded by the Cambodian Hockey Federation.

Games will run from 1:30pm to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Maqsood noted that the tourney has yet to attract sponsors with all costs borne by the competing sides, although more clubs were interested in joining in future years.

The Cambodian team currently train at the Vietcam facility on Saturday and Sunday morning between 6am and 7:30am.
