Brief details of the upcoming Hun Sen Cup have just been released by the football federation. The Hun Sen Cup, which represents the only knock-out competition for Cambodian clubs both inside and outside the Metfone C-League, will begin a month earlier this time around. The group games will be held in the provinces between 3-11 December and then the competition moves to Phnom Penh, will include the regional group winners and teams from the C-League, as it did last year, with matches being played between 20 December and the final on Saturday 16 February. A far better spacing of games than was experienced in the cup at the start of this year. You may recall that the top eight teams in last year's C-League met the eight qualifiers from the five regional groups and the FFC managed to squeeze 32 matches into twelve days of competition. Which was ridiculous. Commonsense has prevailed this time around. No word on the start date of the Metfone C-League as yet.
