Boeung Ket Football Club, who are one of the most successful club sides and finished 4th last season made the shock announcement yesterday that the 8th would be their last day at the Cambodian Airways Stadium.

No reason for the move was given, with one source close to the club stating that it was linked to “rent increases”.

Quite simply no one knows, with the club not making any further statements. There is of course a possibility that the club fix whatever dispute they with the stadium, but should they not there are other potential scenarios.

One of these is AEU Park, the home ground of Asia Euro United is known to be on the market and there is of course the national stadium.

According to one source the bidding for the Chinese built Morodok Techo Stadium has already began, but whether it falls within the budget of Boeung Ket FC is very much unknown.
