The Football Federation of Cambodia (FFC) has this week announced the ten teams that will take part in the first ever Cambodia Women’s Football Championship, which will kick off on Sunday.
Clubs that are competing in the country’s male top league Metfone Cambodia League, will now also have a women’s team representated in the Women’s League. These clubs are Boeung Ket Angkor, Phnom Penh Crown, Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng and the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces.
Additional teams whom will take part in the inaugural edition are Siem Reap, Battambang, Kampong Speu, Kampong Thom, Kandal and Kampong Chhnang.
“The Women’s Football Commission should work very hard to develop women’s football, with an eye on the upcoming Southeast Asian Games Games,” Keo Sareth, the General Secretary of the Football Federation said.
Cambodia is set to host the Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games) in 2023, having a credible Women’s Football team would be ideal as they look to also make an impression at the SEA Games 2021 that will be hosted by Vietnam.
