THE Lautoka Volleyball Association will open its 2014 season with a knockout tournament at the multipurpose courts on Saturday.

The knockout tournament will attract the leading clubs in the Sugar City.

Saffron, Liberty, Sky Hawks and Tribe will be the title contenders in the men's division.

"Lautoka is ready to host the Western Rally Championship," he said.

"We expect a big number of clubs to play under our banner this year. The knockout will set the pace. The squad training will also resume next week."

The Lautoka knockout competition will begin at 10am. Topline is the defending champion for the Western Rally Championship.
