Western Uni head to Bangkok for friendly

Western University football team will play a Thai side from Kasem Bundit University in Bangkok this Friday at the start of the ASEAN University Cup competition.

A delegation of 18 players, two coaches and four officials will cross the border for the friendly match, which aims to strengthen educational cooperation and exchange cultural ideas, and potentially players, between the countries.

The Cambodians will also make trips to play university sides in Vietnam, Laos and Myanmar, according to Western University executive director Lay Sothea.

The total cost for the four trips is estimated at $30,000.
