Great Britain and the Netherlands: host countries for the first time


Lausanne, 31st October, 2007 - For the very first time, Great Britain and the Netherlands will host a major FIVB Beach Volleyball event.


The city of Brighton located at only 45 minutes from London is going to host the eighth edition of the SWATCH-FIVB Junior (Under 21) World Championships from September 3 to September 7, 2008, while the Hague will welcome the seventh edition of the SWATCH-FIVB Youth (Under 19) World Championships from July 30 to August 3, 2008. These events have been critical to create a new generation of athletes and in a few years have contributed to develop teams that have been capable to win medals at the Olympic Games and at the World Tour events. The winner of the above events in 2008 will be rewarded by the FIVB and by the respective organizers of a wild card and free transportation to take part in the main draw of a SWATCH FIVB World Tour event in 2008 or in 2009.


The FIVB is very proud to stage a world event in a country like United Kingdom aiming to increase the awareness of Beach Volleyball leading towards the smooth preparation of the Beach Volleyball tournaments at the 2012 Olympic Games which will be held in the core of London in Horse Guards square. We are also satisfied to see the Nederlands organizing such important events as this country that has a solid tradition in Volleyball is now also developing very competitive Beach Volleyball teams and a strong interest for this discipline at any level’ said the FIVB Beach Volleyball Events Director from the FIVB headquarters in Lausanne.
