NagaWorld FC recent form

Last won the league relatively recently in 2018, with their sole Hun Sen Cup coming in 2013. In the last CPL season they finished 5th, but were never ever looking like champions.

This season they are though looking pretty special and most recently spanked Angkor Tiger 7-0 and stand a good chance of winning their trophy in 5 years.

NagaWorld FC Trophy Haul

As mentioned just two trophies, the 2018 Cambodian League and the 2013 Hun Sen Cup. Despite this they are always there, or there about and are routinely seen as challengers.

NagaWorld FC Stadium

Have had somewhat of a nomadic existence and have played all across the capital. From this season they should finally have a “home” in the newly built Kampong Speu stadium, although whether this will galvanize the locals is yet to be seen.

Who is the NagaWorld FC Coach?

Manger by former club and national star Khim Borey who is well liked within the game. Made manager in 2022 and has largely steadied the ship during this time.

2023-24 will be the big test on his talent, particularly once the foreign player quote has been filled.

Top Players

As a top club the team boast a number of truly great players, many of them young. Currently the star man would be Brazilian Marcio who scored 4 goals against Angkor Tiger in his last match.

The big question though is which foreign players they will sign next, as this will truly show their intent for the season.

NagaWorld FC 2023-24 Expectations?

Despite only finishing 5th last year they have money, a new stadium and a new coach. They have also been touted by top managers, such as Oleg at Phnom Penh Crown as challengers. This could really be their year.
