The FIVB Executive Committee
applauded the initiative of the
FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour
Council with its new found approach
in 2013 as its end of year meeting in
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil came to a close.
Following a very successful year in
2012, the FIVB Beach Volleyball
World Tour Council, led by Council
president and FIVB Board of
Administration member Vicente
Araujo, sought a new vision for 2013
and beyond in order to capitalise on
the tremendous momentum of the
past 12 to 24 months and create new
opportunities for players. A reduction
in the level of approval criteria for
FIVB Open events has created that
break through with a potential
record-breaking FIVB beach
volleyball calendar in 2013.
Countries of the likes of Peru, Qatar
and Uganda are expected to host
FIVB Open events for the first time
in 2013 while USA could potentially
be welcomed back for the first time
since 2004 as part of a calendar
which is likely to cover nine months
of the year (March to December)
and all five confederations. The
confirmation of the 2013 calendar
was released in February.
