|The PPCFC 1st-team will be heading overseas very soon|
The Phnom Penh Crown 1st-team will travel to Yunnan Province in southwest China on Wednesday 3 December to join the 2014 Yunnan-Asean International Tournament, which takes place between 5-10 December. Eight teams will be taking part in this annual tournament, including 6 from Asean countries and two clubs from Yunnan Province. The invited club teams from the Asean countries are: Muang Thong United (Thailand), Hanoi T&T (Vietnam), Yadanarbon (Myanmar), Sabah FA (Malaysia), the Laos National Team and PPCFC. "This is a great opportunity to kick-start our preparation for the forthcoming 2015 season, and the high standard of the teams invited to Yunnan will give this tournament a serious competitive edge. We will take a squad of 18 players next week and though we have only just returned to serious pre-season training, we are determined to take full advantage of this opportunity," said head coach Sam Schweingruber. Last November, Crown joined the Nanning Asean International Invitation Tournament in Nanning, China and finished in third place.
