Drum roll please…
The wait is finally over!
It gives us great pleasure to reveal that Hamburg will be the location for the Swatch Beach Volleyball FIVB World Tour Finals 2017.
Yes, that’s right, between 22-27 August we’re heading to Germany as the Hamburg Major gets an unbelievable upgrade as we witness the FIVB World Tour season draw to its dramatic conclusion at the home of the reigning women’s Olympic and Swatch World Tour Finals champions Laura Ludwig and Kira Walkenhorst!
Following the unprecedented success of last season’s Hamburg Major – where record crowds raised the roof of the Rothenbaum Stadium – the world’s best players will go head-to-head in Hamburg as they battle for the right to be crowned Swatch Beach Volleyball FIVB World Tour Finals champions.
Just weeks after these famous faces battle out for the right to lift the 2017 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships, the elite 12 teams per gender will be vying for one of the biggest prizes in beach volleyball history.
It will be yet another stunning week of action on the sand, played in front of a crowd crazy for beach volleyball. These are the same fans that stole the show at last season’s Hamburg Major and cheered Laura and Kira to a victory, which set them on the road to what turned into be a truly historic season that saw them clinch Olympic, World Tour, European and National gold.
After the previous successes of the Swatch World Tour Finals in Fort Lauderdale – in 2015 – and, last year, in Toronto, the third instalment promises to be in an even bigger spectacle…and we can’t wait!
A press conference to unveil the destination of the Swatch Beach Volleyball FIVB World Tour Finals has just started you can follow the action across our social media channels Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Swatch Major Series summer schedule: Poreč Major June 27-July 2; Gstaad Major, Switzerland July 4-9, Swatch World Tour Finals, Hamburg August 22-27.
The beach volleyball elite cannot wait to return for the 2019 World Championships
Stat’s the way we like it!
Thank you Hamburg!
