               Participation of foreign players in Beach Volleyball National Circuits

FIVB registered Beach Volleyball players are free to play in any National tournament abroad recognized by a National Federation unless that tournament conflicts with another FIVB official event such as the World Championships and Grand Slam Events and the player concerned is eligible to enter such events. Players do not need to go through any International transfer procedure and there is no need to pay a transfer fee. However, players need to have a letter of authorization from  their  National  Federation  and  must  comply with the regulations for each respective National Circuit  issued  by  the  Organizers.  Any limitation concerning the number of foreign player allowed taking part in a National Circuit remains the responsibility of the competitionís Organizers.

In case of conflicting dates between legs of a National Tour and Open Events, each FIVB registered athlete will be responsible to meet the minimum required participation in World Tour events as per FIVB-NF-Athlete Agreement.   

The above rules are valid only for National Circuits officially homologated by the FIVB. National Federations organizing a National Circuit are thus requested to inform the FIVB about their respective calendar (places and dates) and regulations in order for the FIVB to grant them an official recognition.

Athletes taking part in a National Tour event not sanctioned by the respective National Volleyball Federation and not homologated by the FIVB are subject to sanctions and/or disqualification
