Girls Football Festival

PPCFC girls coach Sorn Srey Teav shows off the Crown jersey
The 2nd National Girls U-15 Football Festival kicked-off this morning after yesterday's press conference and draw at the Crown Sports Bar. The playing kit for each of the 12 teams has its own sponsor, with the German Embassy providing a big chunk of the funds needed to stage the event, organised by the SALT Academy from Battambang, under the guidance of Crown coach Sam Schweingruber. The Army Stadium is the venue for the group matches today and tomorrow morning, each team plays three games and then later tomorrow, finals day, will see the knock-out phase and the appearance of special guest, singing sensation Meas Soksophea who will be performing between 3-5pm. Phnom Penh Crown have a team under the leadership of coach Sorn Srey Teav but the outstanding favourites to carry off the title are the Mighty Girls from Battambang, the strongest female team in the country for the last few years.
