Brazil's double-gender event returns to Fortaleza

FORTALEZA 2007 - Fortaleza, the capital city of the State of Ceará, located in northeastern Brazil, has been for decades one of the most popular destinations of Brazilian tourists. In recent years, the fame of Fortaleza has been spreading across the world, and the number of Europeans, North and South Americans traveller coming to Cearás has grown fast.

With a population of over 2.4 million, Fortaleza is the fourth-most populous city in Brazil and the second most important city in the region in economic terms, after Salvador in Bahia.
 

 

 

 

Men - The SWATCH FIVB World Tour returns to Fortaleza for the first-time since 2002.  The previous four Vitória events featured all-Brazilian gold medal matches with four different winners.  Brazil has hosted more men’s “open” SWATCH stops than any other country with the 2006 Vitoria event being No. 28.
