Siem Reap, Cambodia, December 1, 2019 – The third event on the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour in 2020 will be held in Siem Reap as Cambodia continues its hosting duties in the 2019-2020 season.
The world-famous resort town in northern Cambodia will be the base for a women’s only 2-Star tournament that runs from February 6-9.
It is the first of two 2-Star events to take place in Cambodia and will be followed by a men-only 2-Star tournament in Phnom Penh from February 20-23.
