Lausanne, Switzerland, April 05, 2013 - The
International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) is pleased to announce that the
accreditation process for the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Cup Final to be held
in Campinas, Brazil from May 29 to June 2 is now open.
The FIVB Beach Volleyball World Cup Final, is the crowning event in a three-year process, which started with the Continental Cup.
The Continental Cup ran from 2010 to 2012 as a London Olympic Games qualifying event - and included the FIVB World Cup Olympic Qualification in Moscow, Russia in June, 2012, which also qualified teams for the London Olympics.
The FIVB Beach Volleyball World Cup Final will now determine the champion country from the Continental Cup, featuring 10 countries per gender represented by one team each. Prize money of $150,000 per gender is on offer to the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Cup Final participants.
The 10 countries will include the winners of each of the Continental Cup Finals and the national federations who qualified a maximum of two teams at the 2012 Olympic Games via the Olympic rankings. If the 10 vacancies are not filled with these criteria, the best country on the 2012 Olympic Games rankings not already qualified will participate.
