Rugby sevens tourney hits Old Stadium

The Cambodian Federation of Rugby and local gaming-sector leader Naga-World team up again this year to uncork the Kingdom’s annual champagne rugby event, the NagaWorld Sevens, at the Old Stadium tomorrow.

The day-long event is a great outing for the rugby fraternity and promises exciting fare involving eight Cambodian and expatriate teams.

Apart from giving the local sides a fantastic taste of rugby sevens, the competition spreads out a strong platform for these teams to prepare for international exposure next year, when a unified Cambodian national team will compete at this level.

Tomorrow’s matches kick off at 10am, with the grand final set for 5pm.

As usual, entry to the event is free and there is plenty of food and drink available at the ground.

The CFR successfully staged the Indochine Cup last month and are gearing up for the month end’s Asian 5 Nations Division V finals involving Cambodia, Brunei and Laos.
