Moscow Grand Slam presented to Russian media
Moscow, Russia, June 3, 2014 - A press conference devoted to the seventh
edition of the FIVB Grand Slam in Moscow was held on Monday at the multimedia
centre “Russia Today” in Russia’s capital city.
“This is the seventh consecutive year that our city is playing host to one of the world’s most important beach volleyball events. I would like to thank all our sponsors and partners. From year to year their number is increasing which is good for everyone who is involved in the tournament.
“This year we are ready to host all of the best players in the world. Last year the competition was held for the very first time at the beach sports complex Dinamo and the event got excellent reviews from the FIVB and all athletes. In our preparations for this edition we have tried to take into account the remarks of our fans and have improved the infrastructure. The capacity of the centre court has been increased to 3,500 seats.
“We have also prepared a number of
surprises for our guests, including a draw for free trips to Turkey. The
winners will be able to spend their time in a 5-star hotel with the opportunity
to play beach volleyball. This year the tournament comes by the time Russian
people will have four days off for public holidays, so we are expecting full
stands and we hope that the weather will help us achieve this goal.”
