Kihara joins Tri-Asia as club looks to build new stadium

Tri-Asia Phnom Penh FC completed the signing of former J.League midfielder Masakazu Kihara of Japan on Friday, with the 26-year-old inking a one-year deal that will see him start in the upcoming Metfone C-League season.

“This day will be written in stone of Cambodian football history and we will make this club become the top team in the Kingdom,” said Tri-Asia owner Yokoi Tomoyuki, who has seen his side rise to the top tier via Division A1 promotional play-offs last year.

Tomoyuki added that the club were looking to build a 5,000-seat home stadium at a location yet to be determined.
