Portugal's city of Matosinhos ready for another dose of high-level beach volleyball


This will be the second time this month that Marginal Beach is hosting a major international beach volleyball competition

Matosinhos, Portugal, June 26, 2014 - Portugal is set to host another important international beach volleyball competition, this time again in Matosinhos a city with a strong tradition in the sport.  

The double-gender Pool A tournament of the first round of the 2014-2016 CEV Beach Volleyball Continental Cup is scheduled for June 28 and 29 at Marginal Beach, the same venue which recently hosted the European Qualification Tournament for the FIVB U17 World Championship.

A total of 32 athletes from four different countries – France, Hungary, Iceland and hosts Portugal – will take to the courts in the northern coastal city of Portugal, with its excellent playing conditions and northern hospitality. 

The participants’ main goal is to be at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  In order to achieve that, their national beach volleyball teams must go through several rounds and then excel in the Final Round of the CEV Continental Cup, which is scheduled to take place in 2016.

All the conditions are in place this weekend for Matosinhos to host a memorable competition. The hosting traditions of the northern people of Portugal, their passion for the sport and the successful recent organisation of international beach volleyball events have raised the expectations of players, coaches, staff and, of course, beach volleyball fans.
