Klagenfurt to host 2013 Beach Volleyball European Championships

Luxembourg, Luxembourg, November 2, 2012 - After the memorable edition celebrated this past June in The Hague, the European Volleyball Confederation has chosen the city of Klagenfurt as the venue of the 2013 CEV Beach Volleyball European Championships Final that will run from July 29 through to August 4, 2013.

Klagenfurt is internationally known as a real beach volleyball “Mecca” having hosted major international events for the past 16 years, with the last editions of the FIVB Grand Slam having been visited – on average – by some 130,000 people.

This time Klagenfurt will play host to the real highlight of the European summer season with 32 duos per gender that will be fighting for the medals as well as for the always appealing prize money at stake. The local promoter ACTS guided by its chairman Hannes Jagerhofer will quite evidently do its utmost to deliver a world-class show similarly to what was regularly done for the previous editions of a tournament that has regularly attracted the attention of media and fans from all over the world.      

“It is evidently a real honor for the CEV to be able to organize the next Beach Volleyball European Championships in Klagenfurt,” CEV President André Meyer said proudly. “The unique atmosphere and the incredible audience that every year comes together there in Klagenfurt to follow the competition are known worldwide. After the very successful European Championships we celebrated this past summer in The Hague, I am absolutely convinced that via the first-class work delivered by the local organizers Klagenfurt will provide us with a memorable competition. I already look forward to the days where Europe’s beach volleyball elite will be battling for the medals in the splendid scenario of the Wörthersee”.
