Tiger Street Football set to roar back to life

The Tiger Street Football Tour returns to Cambodia for its second season with Siem Reap kicking off the provincial qualifying cycle this weekend.

Battambang, a newly added location this year, follows suit next week with Sihanoukville staging qualifiers on March 22-23.

Teams from Phnom Penh will fight it out on March 28-29 with the Kingdom’s capital hosting the final round on March 30.

Barring Sihanoukville, the other three centres have shot over the team registration target set by the organisers.

A field of 64 will line up in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, while 32 teams vie for the qualifying spots in Battambang. Sihanoukville has currently recorded 39 registrations against the targeted 64 sides.

The qualifying matches involving five-a-side teams will be played over two halves of six minutes each with a two-minute break.
