The Fiji Volleyball Federation is considering introducing Super League in the 2016-17 season.

FVF vice-president Taitusi Naiduki said the popularity and the growth of the sport calls for more domestic competition.

But this would depend heavily on sponsorship.

“Our ability to become the Oceania champions, our participation in the World Championship and the hosting of international events in Fiji in 2016 speaks of the potential of volleyball in Fiji, ”Naiduki said.

He said the contribution of volleyball to nation building through its Pacific Volleyball Partnership programme funded by the Australia government has been recognized internationally winning two international awards in London and in Paris.

“Its wider participation by males and females of all ages in every village, settlements, and communities around Fiji can be furthered through good governance at the club and association levels which is the objective of the board for the 2016-2017 season,”Naiduki said.

The FVF has also endorsed the participation of clubs for the Vulaca Tournament on February 24- 25 in Suva.

The participating clubs are Suva, Raiwai, Raiwaqa, Nakasi, Veiyasana, Navosai, Nasova Police Youth, RFMF, Wai, Mid Central, Delainavesi, Vatuwaqa, Qauia, Nasinu, USP, Kinoya, Nadawa.
