Phnom Penh Crown General Secretary Ly Heang reveals the purpose of the upcoming Smart RSN Stadium Cup that will kick-off this Friday, with three clubs taking part.

The 2020 Smart RSN Stadium Cup will be held from 10 January to 14 January thanks to the cooperation between Phnom Penh Crown, Smart Axiata and other sponsors.

Two Cambodian clubs including Phnom Penh Crown and Angkor Tiger and Malaysian side Kedah FA will take part in the upcoming pre-season tournament at the Smart RSN Stadium.

“This tournament aims to give a good challenge for the clubs including Malaysian side Kedah FA, and this will give a new visibility with the pre-season tournament in Cambodia,” Ly Heang told

“Our expectation is to give [the fans] an interesting football tournament as we have invited an overseas club from Malaysia, and it’s also a part of our preparation ahead of the new season. Hopefully, this tournament will bring an excitement to the fans.

“We invited Kedah FA as it’s also their plan to have a tour to Cambodia, and they need a good competition and a good pitch for their AFC Cup preparation. We also want to have a club from the province to make the tournament more exciting.”
