Last 16 stage hits off in volleyball competition

The National Volleyball Leo Cup 2014 launched its round of 16 stage at the Olympic Stadium indoor hall yesterday, with sides vying for cash prizes that total 88 million riel ($22,000).

Ten qualifiers from provincial play-offs join the top six finishers of last year’s tournament and are split into four groups of four.

The top two from each group will advance to compete for the Hun Sen Cup, while the bottom two clubs will enter the National Volleyball Leo Cup competition.

Winners of the Hun Sen Cup will receive 40 million riel and victors of the Leo Cup will take home 12 million riel.

A late change to the last 16 line up sees sides Bodyguard Commander, Sea Dragon and Tbong Khmum switched for Beach Military Camp 3, Kampot Police Department and Russey Keo respectively.

Volleyball Federation of Cambodia general secretary Beung Kimtaor revealed that Bodyguard Commander had relinquished their place due to a clash with the department’s anniversary event, while the other two teams had been kicked out because they did not turn up for training.
