The FFC have finally issued the fixtures for the first round of matches in this season's Metfone C-League campaign. They have switched the kick-off times at the Olympic Stadium to 4pm and 6pm, under floodlights. Lets hope the standard of the floodlights is better than it has been previously. Fans have been calling for more evening football, rather than the heat of the day 2pm kick-offs and the FFC have heard the call. However, it needs good floodlights for it to be a success and the lux value of the lights when measured by the AFC wasn't anywhere near high enough for serious competitive matches. Games to be played at the Old/Army Stadium will kick off earlier, at 1.45pm and 3.45pm I believe. Anyway, here are the fixtures.
Sun 26 Jan v AEU – 6pm at Olympic Stadium
Sun 2 Feb v Army – 6pm at Olympic Stadium
Sun 9 Feb v Kirivong – 6pm at Olympic Stadium
Sun 16 Feb v BBU – 4pm at Olympic Stadium
Sat 22 Feb v Boeung Ket – 4pm at Olympic Stadium
Sat 1 Mar v Albirex Niigata – 6pm at Olympic Stadium
Sat 29 Mar v TriAsia PP – 6pm at Olympic Stadium
Sat 5 Apr v National Police – 6pm at Olympic Stadium
Sat 26 Apr v NagaCorp – 6pm at Olympic Stadium
Sat 17 May v Svay Rieng – 6pm at Olympic Stadium
Sat 24 May v Western Uni – 3.45pm at Army Stadium.
The 2nd Round fixtures will be published at a later date. Don't hold your breath.
