FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour

Moscow | 31 mai - 5 juin 2017


Press release

Changes to Moscow and The Hague tournaments

The Moscow 3-star tournament run from May 31-June 4

Lausanne, Switzerland, May 12, 2017 – Changes will be made to the Moscow 3-Star and The Hague 3-Star competition systems due to recent changes to the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour calendar and their impact on the number of matches in the 2016-2017 season.

The tournament format will be played in two phases, i.e. a first phase of modified pool play of eight pools per gender with four teams per pool; the top three ranked teams will advance to the second phase, which will be played in single elimination format for a bracket of 24 teams.

This will be:

• To increase the number of teams in the Qualification Tournament from 16 to 24 per gender.
• To adopt the same competition format as for the Rio 4-Star event (modified pool play followed by the single elimination bracket of 24 teams), for the Main Draw tournament of the above mentioned 3-star tournaments.
