It gives us great pleasure to reveal that Hamburg will be the location for the Swatch Beach Volleyball FIVB World Tour Finals presented by Vodafone.

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!
