FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Tour breaks new borders with maiden trip to Morocco

The FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Tour arrives on the shores of Morocco for the first time in its 22-year history in October as the circuit continues to break into new regions.

The north-African country has only ever welcomed FIVB beach volleyball action on three previous occasions, with FIVB challengers being held in the country in 2004, 2005 and 2006 and is only the second country on the continent to stage a World Tour event following tournaments in Cape Town and Durban, South Africa.

A bustling tourist city, Agadir sits on the coast and is a regular destination for European holiday makers. Famous for its sea food it has a population of over 200,000 and is close to the foot of the Atlas Mountains.
