All set for Volleyball extravaganza in Eldoret

The third leg of the Kenya Volleyball Federation League and the AMACO International tournament will take place this weekend in Eldoret starting Friday.

The third leg of the Kenya Volleyball Federation league will serve off on Friday at the Eldoret Polytechnique with close to 26 matches expected to be played.

The league action will open the three days volleyball extravaganza at the grounds in Eldoret with the 12th edition of the Amaco International tournament taking centre stage on Saturday and Sunday.

Already six foreign clubs have confirmed their participation in the annual tournament.

AMACO earlier this week announced 9.3 Million shillings of sponsorship towards the event

In a statement on Monday during the sponsorship announcement, AMACO CEO Elizabeth Kosgei said that “In recognition of the excellence portrayed in this tournament, winners will be taking home cash prizes of Ksh. 600,000 up from Ksh. 450,000 in 2017. We hope to see this figure grow just as the tournament grows in the years to come and there will be room for more interested partners to join. AMACO will continue to support such sporting events both financially and in-kind, as we make our mark towards the realisation of Kenya’s sporting excellence.”

Among the foreign teams that are expected in Eldoret are Uganda’s Amateur Volleyball Club, Espoir women and Sky from Uganda, Faru (Tanzania) and South Sudan’s Rembo.
