The Cambodia Basketball Federation-sanctioned Bayon Airline Cup involving 16 teams will tip off at the Olympic Stadium Indoor arena on Sunday morning.
Two prominent CBL contestants, Extra Joss Fighters and Phnom Penh Dragons, figure among the participating teams, most of which are newly formed alliances with predominantly Chinese characteristics to the names and players.
The preliminary league phase matches will be played until the middle of March next year with the playoffs and Cup final stretching into May.
The 16 teams have been split into two groups of eight. The official opening ceremony has been fixed for 8.30am.
