An opening ceremony for the second edition of the U13 Festival of Football, organised by the Football Federation of Cambodia, was held yesterday morning at the Military Police training field in Kambol commune, on the outskirts of Phnom Penh, and presided over by FFC president Sao Sokha. During the week-long tournament, 32 youth teams in eight groups will play matches at the Military Police field and the nearby National Football Center, in Chaeng Maeng commune. FFC spokesman and deputy general secretary May Tola said the main goal of hosting the event was to attract more youngsters to play football. “[The competition is] not to find champions … The participants will receive sports equipment and educational materials,” he said.
