Asia Champions Trophy Draw

Phnom Penh Crown's Academy will once again enter the region's most exciting youth competition for Under-16 players, the Asia Champions Trophy 2014, beginning in May. There will be twelve teams from 11 different countries in Asia including new teams from China and India this year. It promises to be another fantastic competition for the Academy youngsters with matches on a home and away basis against U-16 teams from China, Thailand, Malaysia, Myanmar and Laos. Drawn in Group B, each team plays 10 matches and the top two teams from each group progress to the semi-finals. The draw has been made and more details of venue/times will follow, but for now, here is the schedule of matches for the PPCFC Academy;
Sat 17 May v Frenz United Malaysia B - home
Sat 24 May v Lao Toyota - home
Sat 31 May v Chonburi Thailand - home
Sat 7 Jun v Guangzhou Evergrande China - away
Sat 14 Jun v Myanmar U16 National Team - home
Sat 21 Jun v Myanmar U16 NT - away
Sat 28 Jun v Guangzhou Evergrande China - home
Sat 5 Jul v Chonburi Thailand - away
Sat 12 Jul v Lao Toyota - away
Sat 19 Jul v Frenz United Malaysia B - away
Some fabulous matches in prospect, home and away, with the entry of Guangzhou Evergrande from China, one of the biggest clubs in the world, and last year's winners, Chonburi, suggesting Crown's group will be the toughest. But that's what the Academy want - to test themselves against the best.
