Phnom Penh Crown take on the up and coming young student team from the capital-based Asia Euro University at Crown's Tuol Kork training home at 3pm this afternoon. It's a great opportunity for the students to test their mettle against the reigning Cambodian champions, who are keen to get some games under their belt before the new Metfone C-League kicks-off on 2 April. News is filtering through that the C-League will start in April and end in September and due to financial difficultities, Khemara Keila will not take part this year. Which is sad as Khemara have been one of the country's best teams for many years before falling on hard times. A three-way play-off between Chhlam Samuth, Chhma Khmao and Neak Kiev (from Kompong Cham) has been taking place this week to decide who will get the vacant spot, after which I assume the football federation will at last publish this season's fixture list.
