Japanese aces eclipse European All Stars

Having lost their opening matches, the European and Japanese All Stars were left fighting for their survivals in the ISI Palm KMH Super Cup at the KMH Stadium in Chaom Chao.

A hat-trick from Daichi Inoue, a double from Miyatake Yuko and a goal from veteran Ota gave the Japanese a 6-3 win over the Europeans.

With the win the Japanese side, who lost their first game to Khmer United All Stars, will have to beat KMH All Stars in their final fixture to have any chance of progressing.

For European All Stars, who suffered a heavy 7-0 loss to KMH stars in their previous fixture, the final match against Khmer United will be a mere formality.

Speaking about the tournament, which has continued to draw fans to KMH Park every day, Ken Gadaffi, director of RSISA International, the company that is powering the Digital Ticketing System for the KMH stadium, lauded the fans for adapting to the system quickly.

’Very impressive’

“I must say it’s been very impressive. We never expected the fans to get used to this system so fast. A total of about 1567 fans have registered for the KMH Park FanCard, this is exactly the number of fans who have attended games at the venue in the last two weeks.

“What this system is bringing to football events in Cambodia now is for accurate records of fans attendance to games. Before it was all guesswork,” he said.

“Using the 24-member ticketing platform will help stadium managers know in advance the number of fans attending the game, what kind of security and logistics will be required to help fans gain entry and [assist with] queue management,” he explained.

“So far we have seen that with this system stadium managers can effectively put in place a crowd control mechanism. We hope other grounds will adopt this digital ticketing system soon, especially for the Metfone Cambodia League.”
