A new women’s football league kicks off this weekend with 10 teams set to face off, an effort by the national football federation to recruit top female players to compete at the 2023 Southeast Asian Games to be hosted by Cambodia.

The Cambodian Women’s League, which includes four existing women’s teams from professional football clubs, will hold its first matches on Sunday with the debut season running through December, said Puth Thyda, vice president of the Football Federation of Cambodia’s women’s football committee.

“The creation of the women’s league is to develop women as well as to be ready to host the 2023 SEA Games,” Thyda said on Tuesday.
