There is an increase in number of participating teams in the Fiji Volleyball Federation’s Crest Chicken Easter Championship that is currently underway at the FMF Gymnasium and LICI Courts in Suva.

FVF official, Laisenia Seru said yesterday that the championship continues to increase in popularity.

He said the turnout of teams show the huge interest from the Western Division and this helped in the revival of some associations there.

“Surprisingly we now have Vatukoula Volleyball Association, who has not been participating for a number of years and then the Qauia Volleyball Association, who are now participating for the second year in a row,” he said.

“We were supposed to have teams from the North as well but unfortunately they did not make it this morning.

“Tomorrow we will have the quarterfinals then move on to the semis and finals for both men and women.”

Seru added that for this year they have included an Under-20 competition.

“As for the second day certain teams have stood out and we now know which teams will go into the eliminations and on to the finals based on their performance.”

In yesterday’s competition, Topline, Lautoka and Raiwai came out victorious in their matches.

The Lautoka-based men’s Topline side beat Mid Central by 2 sets to 1; Lautoka brushed Vatukoula One aside by two straight sets while Raiwai proved too strong for Vatukoula by winning on similar margin.

Kinoya One won by default over Top Line One. Raiwaqa One maintained their unbeaten form from Day One with a two straight set win over Lautoka Two.

In the women’s division, favourites Suva won by default over Nadi Two, while Lautoka Two won by two straight sets over Nasinu and later Qauia.

The games continue today.
