THERE is good news for the soccer fans in the West.

They will not have to pay anything to watch the Kriz Signs National Club Championship national play-offs this weekend at Prince Charles Park.

Fiji Football Association competitions manager Amitesh Pal said this would be good treat for soccer fans in the Western Division.

"We will not charge any entry fees to the venue for the competition," he said.

"This is good news for the fans and it is expected to bring in a lot of people to watch the games.

"The best clubs in Fiji will be up against each other so we can expect top level football from the clubs."

Five clubs from the Southern Division and three from the West will feature in the three-day event.

The pool draws for it will be done in Suva today at the Fiji FA headquarters.

"We will have two pools of four teams each.

"The first round of games will be played on Friday night and the then the second and third rounds on Saturday and then we will have the semi-finals and final on Sunday.

"We are expecting stiff competition in the tournament and we are encouraging teams to be well prepared."

Meanwhile, Pal said the level of competition between clubs in the country was better now compared with the past.

"The competition level in the respective zones was quite good and all teams did their best.

"In the southern zone, the clubs from Lami showed great improvement but were unlucky to lose their matches."
