An International School’s Football League will be launched on October 26 featuring futsal-style five-a-side games contested by students representing Phnom Penh’s various educational institutions.
The tournament, to be played on Saturday mornings between 9am and noon at a venue to be confirmed, will feature three separate age groups including U12s, U14s and U16s.
Organiser Jimmy Campbell said he plans to host eight teams in each division.
All students will need to verify enrolment at their school and teams can register up to ten players each of mixed gender.
“This tournament offers schools the chance to compete against each other in a sporting environment. It gives students an opportunity to share in something unique and also offers an opportunity to network and to build lasting relationships in a competitive but friendly environment,” Campbell stated in a press release.
The competition will follow a round robin format for the preliminary stage in each division, with the sides facing each other twice. Play-offs will then be contested with the top two of each class progressing to title deciders on a finals day slated for March 22 next year.
Winning teams will each be presented with the International Schools Football League Trophy, and there will also be awards for fair play, top goal scorer and player of the tournament.
