Next Step FC are the CPL 2 club managed by the enigmatic Charlie Pomroy. Last season they came 11th in the second-tier, but have since been on an investment and recruitment drive that the club feel will make them able to compete during the 2023-24 season.

Desportol Pre-Season Cup

The initial idea for Kingdom of Football was to simply play three exhibition games before sports apparel brand Desportol came on board as sponsors of the match against  Next Step FC.

It is now hoped that this could potentially be expanded from next season to potentially include multiple sides.

Desportol have recently become the kit suppliers for Soft Tennis Cambodia,Tennis Cambodia, as well as kitting out both Next Step FC and Kingdom of Football FC.
