FFC restructures its promotional play-offs

The Football Federation of Cambodia announced a revision to the Division A1 promotion play-offs, with all four teams vying for the two places in the 2014 Metfone C-League to play each other in a round-robin format.

The play-offs, slated for October 12-16 at Olympic Stadium, were originally to be played as a pair of two-leg contests between Division A1 winners Tri-Asia Phnom Penh FC, runners-up Takeo and MCL demotees Senate Secretariat and Asia Europe University.

Instead, the top two teams from the mini league-style format will progress to the top tier.

FFC general secretary Kul Sophana told the Post yesterday: “We want to give the chance for these four teams to do their best by meeting all the other hopefuls looking to go to the top league of Cambodia, even though we need to spend much more money [on hosting the play-offs].”
