Hamburg joins the Swatch Major Series household!
Hallo Hamburg, come here and give us a hug!
Good afternoon…have we got some great news for you! There’s a new member of the Beach Majors family!
Between 7-12 June we’ll be setting up shop and gearing up for a week of serves, spikes, digs and dives in Hamburg.
It’s one hell of a hip location. You don’t have to take our word for it. Germany’s second biggest city boasts history, culture, art, sport and music by the bucket load, and now we’re giving it even more reason for you to visit: beach volleyball!
Our great sport is back in Germany for the first time in three years and we couldn’t be happier. The tournament will be our first port of call on our stunning summer tour before we up sticks to spectacular stops in Poreč, Gstaad and the world capital of beach volleyball: Klagenfurt in Austria.
But first we’ll be covering Hamburg’s famous Rothenbaum Center Court – usually the home of the Hamburg tennis Masters – in sand for a week, and, if that wasn’t enough – entry will be free!
So how does that all of that sound? What a summer we have in store. Pop stars would be envious of that kind of tour itinerary and we haven’t even revealed the top secret location of the Swatch Beach Volleyball FIVB World Tour Finals yet …
What’s more, the location aside, there’s a major point to this Major: it’s also the final tournament on the tour that gives teams the chance to earn those all-important ranking points for the Olympics for Rio. So expect a thrilling week of competitive action. We can’t wait!
Don’t worry, there will be plenty of more news to come from Hamburg in the coming weeks so stay tuned to find out more on our official website.
And don’t forget to check out our social media channels – and yes we’re talking to you our German fans, we know you’re out there and we’ll see you soon!
