Brasilia to kick start FIVB Beach Volleyball SWATCH World Tour for third year running

Brasilia will be the starting point for the FIVB Beach Volleyball SWATCH World Tour for the third year in a row from April 16 to 22 after the Brazilian capital was confirmed as the host of the first stage of the 2012 circuit on Wednesday.

The city has hosted a men’s event since 2009 and a women’s competition since 2010 with USA’s Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser and home duo Juliana Felisberta da Silva and Lariss França picking up the gold medals at last year’s tournament.

Brazil has staged a FIVB Beach Volleyball SWATCH World Tour event every year since the start of the international circuit for men in 1987 and for women in 1992.

The 2012 Tour will feature a total of 14 events in 15 countries over a seven-month period, including a record-breaking nine Grand Slam tournaments, increasing from six in 2011.

There will also be eight Open events, six of which will be single-gender competitions.

With total prize money of $7.3 million on offer, the FIVB Beach Volleyball SWATCH World Tour 2012 will include Grand Slams offering $600,000 prize money in Beijing, Moscow, Rome, Stavanger, Gstaad, Klagenfurt, Stare Jablonki as well as Shanghai, which has been upgraded from an Open, event and Berlin which may return to the calendar for the first time since 2008. The latter event will be confirmed in the near future.
