Ryan Giggs visit for Cambodia footie fiesta keeps fans on edge
8 January 2018
Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs OBE, who is the bookmakers early favourite to replace sacked Stoke City manager Mark Hughes, is likely to visit Cambodia for the first time to grace the opening of the annual sixth Tiger Street Football Festival taking off on January 18.

Social media outlets are abuzz with excitement that the 44-year-old Giggs who spent all his playing career at United with a record 632 appearances, will add great star value to the popular football event spread over eight towns.

There is no official word yet about his travel schedule or activities regarding the highly anticipated trip, but if he indeed makes it, this will be an unforgettable experience for Cambodian football fans.

Carrying a prize fund of $50,000, the shorter street version of the beautiful game will entertain fans in Sihanoukville, Kampong Speu, Battambang, Siem Reap, Poipet, Kampong Cham, Kandal and Phnom Penh, where the competition ends.

"annual sixth Tiger Street Football Festival taking off on January 18." Shouldnt that be "kicking off on January 18."

With Giggs watching on, Anachak Baitong claim trophy
12 March 2018
After traversing the length and breadth of the kingdom of Cambodia, and taking in Sihanoukville, Kampong Speu, Battambang, Siem Reap, Poipet, Kampong Cham, and Kandal, the 6th Annual Tiger Street Football Festival landed in Phnom Penh’s Koh Pich – with ex-Manchester United legend and Tiger brand ambassador Ryan Giggs in attendance.

After navigating the knockout stage, Phnom Penh’s Anachak Baitong were drawn to meet Sihanoukville’s Preah Sihanouk Police Department in yesterday evening’s grand final.
A tense final saw Anachak Baitong take the championship trophy with a slender 2-1 win over their unlucky opponents.

Giggs, the most decorated footballer in history and now head coach of the Wales national team, landed in the kingdom late on Friday evening and was met by hordes of adoring fans at Phnom Penh’s Pochentong airport. The next day, he spoke of his hopes at inspiring Cambodia’s budding footballers.

“The reason I came to Cambodia to be a part of this is because I think it’s a fantastic opportunity to promote football. I’m a football fan and always have been. The game has given me so much and I see now that I have to give back and if that’s to inspire young people and bring new people to the game then that’s fantastic,” said Giggs at Saturday’s press conference at the Sofitel hotel.

Should we tell him there's a bald headed guy in a black suit following him?
