The ISTAF SuperSeries MYANMAR 2014/15 will see 8 elite Men’s teams and 6 distinguished Women’s from 9 countries all across Asia. It will be an international showpiece tournament where professional sepaktakraw teams will converge in this new capital city of Myanmar to showcase their skills.
It is the first time that Myanmar is hosting an ISTAF SuperSeries tournament, and this first leg of the tournament will blaze the trail for intense competition among evenly matched teams.
The Myanmar national team will face its first major test after the recent Incheon Asian Games 2014 where both men’s and women’s team bagged gold in the doubles category, can they transfer that success into the Regu format? We’ll soon find out. Defending champions, Thailand, and last year’s runner’s up Malaysia will also be participating to give the host a run for their money.
