Rome, Italy, November 15, 2018 - After staging the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour Finals the past four seasons in the United States, Canada and Germany, the fifth edition of the season-ending event will be held from September 4-8 in Rome, Italy.

The third of three international beach volleyball events in Italy on the 2018-2019 calendar, Rome follows Alba Adriatica (July 12-14, women's only) and Pinarella di Cervia (July 25-28, men's-only) on the FIVB World Tour schedule.
