Pursat hosts National Public Championships

Aspiring sports stars from across the Kingdom will converge on Pursat this week to compete in the final round of the 2012 National Public Championships.

The tournament – which features competitions in football, volleyball, basketball and athletics – will be held at the Provincial Stadium from September 5 to 19.

Non-athletic disciplines are split into two divisions: A1, teams established last year, and A2, teams comprising participants found from regional events held last month at five centres – Phnom Penh, Kandal, Mondulkiri, Banteay Meanchey and Kampot.

Two teams from each centre in each of the three sports advanced to the finals in Pursat. In football and volleyball, the top two teams in the A2 division at the end of the championships will trade places with the two bottom clubs in A1.

In basketball, four teams will go up and come down.

The best two A1 football teams will make the step up to the prestigious Metfone C-League, replacing relegated Chhlam Samuth and Western University.
