MORE than 20 clubs have registered for the 2014 Lautoka Football Association local league competition which is scheduled to kick off next week.

A new sponsor has been lined up for the competition with prizemoney for both the Super Premier and Premier Divisions.

This was revealed at the council meeting at Churchill Park on Thursday.

Lautoka Football administrator Sanjay Prasad was not part of the meeting because he had to attend the Vodafone Fiji FACT draws in Suva.

Former vice-president Faiaaz Ali who attended the meeting said the need to start the club competition was emphasised to delegates.

He said some concerns were raised about the short notice given for the meeting.

"The club delegates reiterated their demand for the annual congress to be called urgently," Ali said.

"They are also concerned at the delay in the outcome of the investigations carried out by Fiji Football Association into the affairs of Lautoka Football."

Prasad said the meeting was an informal one just to get the club registrations done.

"I'm not aware of what transpired but the focus is on getting the club competition running," he said.

Vitogo Youth, Burning West, Topline FC, Tuivilavila, Why Worry, Boomerang FC, Press, Fusion FC, Rifle Range, Saweni, Blues FC, Banaras, Andhra FC, United Sangam, MVP United and Rangers have registered for the 2014 competition.

The local league will kick off on June 1.
