‘Group of Death’ drawn in Hun Sen Cup last 16

The last 16 of the ninth Hun Sen Cup 2015 was drawn yesterday. The runners-up from Eastern area Group C, Tbung Khmum, have been chosen to replace Asia Europe who withdrew for not being prepared for the tournament.

The draw split the teams into four groups, with two of the eight teams from 2014 Metfone C-League in each. In this year’s “Group of Death”, Phnom Penh Crown were drawn against Beung Ket Rubber Field and National Defence in Group C – with only the top two qualifying.

Defending champions National Police were drawn with Kratie, Albirex Niigata and Tbung Khmum in Group A. Naga Corp and Svay Rieng were placed in Group D. Group B sees last year’s runners-up Build Bright United face off against Kirivong Sok Sen Chey, Tri-Asia and Kampot.

The quarters will be played from January 21 to February 21, with venues and kick-off times to be confirmed after a meeting presided by FFC president Sao Sokha today.
