Dear Beach Volleyball Community

So far, we only knew a scenario like the current one from the fiction of various apocalypse movies. In reality, of course, none of us really have any idea how to deal with it. Only one thing unites us in this challenging time: the certainty that we have to put down everything that is not directly related to the elimination of the virus. A logical conclusion that, however, has a dramatic impact on all of us.

Experts are now predicting that the pandemic will peak in July and August. And that, in turn, means for us that currently, nobody can assume the responsibility to approach the implementation of the planned events with a clear conscience and with full conviction. After extensive discussions with the International Federation, our sponsors as well as partners and representatives from the cities of Vienna and Hamburg, we decided to cancel the two Major tournaments. And we can no longer contribute to the upgrade of the event in Gstaad.

We are sad to announce this decision. At the moment, we only have hope that the global crisis will soon subside and be under control. Then we will start the work to realize our events in 2021 with full energy and unwavering commitment.

My thanks go to everyone who has shared and supported our enthusiasm for beach volleyball over the past 25 years. I firmly believe that we will be able to provide proof of our subline again next year:

A season finale to remember

Thank you Hamburg!

The Red Bull Beach Arena was packed throughout the week of the FinalsThe Red Bull Beach Arena was packed throughout the week of the Finals

A week ago we rocked up at the Rothenbaum and were preparing for yet another stunning season finale.

And if you’ve been paying close attention to our website and social media channels over the past six days, we think you’ll agree that it has been nothing short of sensational.

If there was any need for proof, you only had to take a look around at the thousands of smiling faces on Red Bull Beach Arena over the weekend to realize how much fun was had by us all – the fans, the players, the volunteers and every-amazing-body – that helped make the Beach Volleyball FIVB World Tour Finals presented by Vodafone a massive success.

After 48 action-packed matches, two new teams were crowned champions of the 2018 season.

Beach Vikings and men of the moment Anders Mol and Christian Sørum continued their insane golden run of form by making it four successive gold medals following wins in Gstaad, The Hague and Vienna.

In the women’s tournament, Agatha Bednarczuk and Duda Lisboa turned last year’s silver into gold after their thrilling win over tournament comeback queens Barbora Hermannová and Marketa Sluková.

They were the stars that stole the show on the sand, but it was the German people, our volunteers and beach fans who were the real heroes.

We can’t wait to see you again, so thank you volunteers, thank you Hamburg – thanks for the memories and see you next season for the World Championships!
