THE decision to play all the matches at the FMF Gymnasium resulted in the Joe Vulaca Junior Championship running late last night.

Organisers Fiji Volleyball Federation could have moved some elimination round matches to an alternative venue.

But federation administrator Kenneth Lidise said they wanted to maintain the standard of the game and give all teams a level playing field thus choosing to play the games at the FMF Gymnasium.

He said they were also scouting players for the Oceania Championship to be held in June this year.

Lidise said they hosted 33 men's pool matches on Friday and 12 women's pool matches along with the elimination rounds in both grades yesterday.

"We are trying to contain everything here so we can see the best of the talent for the Oceania Games."
