Youth leagues kick off in the Kingdom

In another big boost for local youth football, two separate four-month long age category league competitions for boys and girls in Phnom Penh and Battambang are set to kick off.

The Indochina Starfish Foundation will be launching their U18 girls, U14 boys and U10 children's leagues involving more than 50 teams at the National Football Centre on Sunday. The field includes several sides from local NGOs, with other notable participants coming from the youth teams of top two Metfone C-League clubs Phnom Penh Crown and Preah Khan Reach.

Battambang will again be a beehive of football activity when the SALT Academy unveils on November 14 its own league for U11, U14 and U17 boys as well as U17 girls. As many as 55 teams drawn from the surrounding area will vie for honours during this highly popular event which concludes in March.

Battambang will play host to a coaches workshop from November 11 to 13 under the stewardship of FIFA Instructor Fritz Schmid of Switzerland.
