Cambodia have been drawn in Group A alongside Vietnam, Malaysia, Myanmar and Laos for this year’s 6th AFF Suzuki Cup involving 10 teams following the official draw held in Jakarta on Wednesday.
Defending champions Thailand have been placed in the company of Indonesia, the Philippines and Singapore, with either Timor-Leste or Brunei taking up the fifth spot.
Timor-Leste host Brunei on September 3, with the return clash on September 8.
The winner of the double-leg contest will complete the Group B line-up.
Cambodia open their group campaign against Malaysia on November 8 at Olympic Stadium in Phnom Penh, with Laos taking on Vietnam at home.
This year each team play two games at home and two away in the group stage.
The aim is to provide more exposure for players in their home country and give fans greater opportunities to back their national team on home soil.
The top two teams progress from each group into semifinals played over two legs, home and away.
The final is also a two-legged affair.
