CNCC Cambodian League Cup
The League of Cambodia Football Cup or its more international name, the "Cambodian League Cup", was founded in June 2021. The Cambodian Second Cup football competition administered by the Cambodian National Competitions Committee (CNCC), constitutes the second level of football cup in Cambodia with the highest Cambodia Football Cup. It brings together the 8 best first teams of Cambodian professional football clubs that divided into 2 groups, Group A and Group B. The season 2021 first matches are on 05 June and the final is 27 June 2021. The CNCC Cambodian League Cup 2021 is currently being played.
Rule of C-Cup League
The rule of the cup is same as the other football competition in Cambodia. There will be two half-time of 45 minutes. Every club can have 5 substitutes for both half times. There will be no home/away calculation point, no extra point for away goals. The 8 teams will play 3 matches in group stage. Only the top 2 teams of each group will go to semi-finals and winners go to the final. If the teams of same group, have same point, the number of goals will be counted. If the points and goals are the same, the CNCC will look their performance during the match to select the winner. All teams participate by will, but only team that have more than 18 players to 40 players are qualifies to register.
Why new Cup?
Cambodian League Cup is organized pretty quick at the late May 2021 under the main purpose:
- Entertain supporters during the one-month break of Cambodian League 1 and Hun Sen Cup.
- Enforce the club performance and develop player football skill
- Introduce the new sponsor of the national teams sponsor (Forward Sportswear)
- Make opportunity to the 2 tops club Boeung Ket and Visakha to train their player for playing in the AFC Cup 2021.
- Make the domestic football competition active while national team play in international competition FIFA World Cup Qualification Asia Round 2 without causing any unfair result for the clubs that have national players. There are 6 clubs (Boeungket, Visakha, Phnom Penh Crown, Preah Khan Reach Svayrieng, Nagaworld and Preyveng) that have national football player plays during June 2021.
Because of these reasons, League Cup is like a friendly matches that doesn't have any special cup title or price reward as Hun Sen Cup.
