Specific dates or requirements were not mentioned, with the main emphasis being on the fact that Benfica were coming to town and that spaces were limited.

Benfica are the most successful club in Portugal and one of the most successful in Europe having won a record 11 Primera Liga titles, two European Cups’s and even the coveted “treble”.

They are not the first European giants to have arranged a training camp in Cambodia, with AC Milan doing similar with Next Step almost 10 years ago.
