Hun Sen Cup wraps up its preliminary phase

The preliminary phase of the 2012-13 Samdech Hun Sen Cup will play out its last two matches today, with Banteay Meanchey taking on Kampong Thom and Siem Reap facing Oddar Meanchey.

The winners of the five provincial centres and the top three sides from the Phnom Penh pool who advance to the final round in the capital from December 12 have already been determined.

Khan Por Sen Chey, Western University, Khan Chamkarmon, Svay Rieng, Preah Vihear, Pailin, Kampot and Kratie will join the top eight finishers of the 2012 Metfone C-League for a single game round-robin format featuring four groups of four teams.

Military Police-backed club Preah Khan Reach are the defending champions, while league winners Boeung Ket Rubber Field will continue their dream year in domestic football.
