Crown set to host AFC President’s Cup games

Phnom Penh Crown discovered their international club opponents for the 2011 AFC President’s Cup after yesterday afternoon’s draw at the AFC headquarters in Kuala Lumpur. The current Metfone C-League champions were placed with Kyrgyzstan’s Neftchi Kochkor-Ata, Bangladesh champions Abahani and Sri Lanka’s Don Bosco Sports Club in Group A, with group matches to be hosted by Cambodia from May 13 to 31. “Kyrgyzstan’s Dordoi won this competition two times, but this year the country is represented by a new club which could be better than Dordoi,” said Crown’s academy head coach Bouy Dary. “Neftchi Kochkor-Ata could be one of the two qualifiers from our group, but I think we have home advantage which could help us reach the Finals.” UNG CHAMROEUN
