The IndoChina Starfish Foundation is hosting its fourth Barclays/ISF U14 Girls Football Tournament at Mekong Field tomorrow.

In cooperation with the Football Federation of Cambodian, 25 school and NGO teams representing six provinces have accepted invitations to participate as well as a visiting team from Singapore.

The day-long competition starts at 8:30am and is slated for conclusion at 5pm. For the first time this year, it will include two teams made up of deaf and hearing-impaired players.

ISF has been operating in the Kingdom since 2006, working in the fields of education and football, and they now support over 3,000 players from more than thirty local NGOs, community groups and government schools.

ISF will also host the fifth PricewaterhouseCoopers/ISF U13 and U10 Boys Football Tournament on March 16 at Mekong Field.
