Fireworks expected in Hamburg as Beach Volleyball FIVB World Tour Finals return to Germany in 2018
Hamburg will host the 2018 Beach Volleyball FIVB World Tour Finals
The best teams in the sport will battle it out for the season’s highest honours and a prize purse of $800,000. They will also play to add their names to the competition’s growing list of illustrious winners, namely Phil Dalhausser/Nick Lucena (USA – 2017) and Alison Cerutti/Bruno Schmidt (Brazil – 2015 and 2016) in the men’s competition and Laura Ludwig/Kira Walkenhorst (Germany – 2016 and 2017) and Larissa Franca/Talita Antunes (Brazil – 2015) in the women’s.
FIVB President Dr. Ary S. Graça F° said: “Hamburg will again welcome beach volleyball’s star players when the Beach Volleyball FIVB World Tour Finals visit the city in August 2018. After a highly successful event in 2017 and the equally impressive Hamburg Major in 2016, I look forward to another exciting event in 2018 which continues the great tradition of the Beach Volleyball FIVB World Tour Finals.”
Beach Majors CEO Hannes Jagerhofer said: “Hamburg proved last year that it is a great host for the World Tour Finals. Therefore I am even happier that we will finish the 2018 season with yet another spectacular final in the German capital of beach volleyball. I cannot think of a better venue for the big showdown of the best teams of the world.“
The 2018 edition of the Beach Volleyball FIVB World Tour Finals will be the fourth after the inaugural event in Fort Lauderdale, USA in 2015, the second edition in Toronto, Canada in 2016 and the 2017 season finale in Hamburg. It will be an outstanding opportunity to see the World Tour’s best go head to head in what promises to be a fascinating event.
