BIDC Cup draw

The Cambodia U23 team in their last international friendly against Singapore
The BIDC Cup 2009, named and sponsored by The Bank for Investment and Development of Cambodia PLC - a Vietnamese Bank - is fast approaching. The winners of the 4 team tournament stand to take home a cash prize of $20,000 and the runners-up get half that. As a precursor to the SEA Games in Laos in early December, the Cambodian Under-23 team will complete against one of their main rivals at the SEA Games, the Laos Under-23s, alongwith two Vietnamese club sides, Hoang Anh Gia Lai (HAGL), who finished 6th in the V-League last term, and Vissai Ninh Binh, who topped the First Division to get promotion to the V-league. HAGL are one of the stalwarts of the V-League, having won league and cup doubles in 2003 and 2004 and finished 3rd a couple of seasons ago. They will be the first opponents for the Cambodian U23s at 6pm on Sunday 8 November at the Olympic Stadium. HAGL are currently playing in a tournament in Phuket, will have a friendly in Bangkok then arrive in Phnom Penh for the BIDC but minus their new coach, Kiatisuk Senamuang, who is in charge of the Thailand U23s for the SEA Games.
The draw for the BIDC Cup is as follows, with all games at the Olympic Stadium:
Sun 8 Nov: V Ninh Binh v Laos U23 (3.30pm): HAGL v Cambodia U23 (6pm)
Tue 10 Nov: V Ninh Binh v HAGL (3.30pm): Cambodia U23 v Laos U23 (6pm)
