Over 100 teams are set to face off at the second edition of the Eldoret City Volleyball tournament that serves off next month at the Eldoret National Polytechnic grounds.
Speaking during the launch of the tournament today at the Uasin Gishu county head quarters in Eldoret Town, Paul Bitok said that among the 100 teams, at least three foreign clubs will be gracing the annual tournament that serves off on December 2nd to December 3rd.
The Kenya Volleyball Federation deputy president was amazed by the mass teams willing to battle for the title.
“What makes this year’s edition even more thrilling is the presence of international teams. So far two teams from Uganda and one from Tanzania have confirmed participation,” said Bitok.
Bitok noted that they were still in talks with a team from Ethiopia and Rwanda to grace the event. “We are expecting a hundred teams and above. We have greatly improved from last year’s edition,” said Bitok who admitted that even the then AMACO International volleyball tournament did not match this year’s event.
During the event at the Uasin Gishu County head quarters in Eldoret, the host governor Jonathan Bii assured that his administration would leave no stone unturned in ensuring a successful second edition of the tournament.
The tournament will be curtain raised with KVF national league matches that will be played at the same venue.
