Amateur teams clash in Anvaya League openers

The 2013 Anvaya League kicked off on Sunday at the Mekong University field with its eight amateur teams all in action for the inaugural edition of the 11-a-side tournament.

In the opening fixture, Bassac FC denied Victory FC their namesake with a 0-0 draw.

Anvaya Sporting Club then declawed Tiger FC with a 4-1 win. Khmer Dev came out firing to shoot down Red Cowboys 6-2, and PPIA edged PSE 3-2 to wrap up the day’s results.

Thirteen more rounds of the group stage will continue each Sunday leading up to the knockout phase in October.

Anvaya is a local organisation that helps bring together foreign-born Cambodian professionals who have relocated to the Kingdom and wish to help with the development of their ancestral homeland.
