Phnom Penh, Cambodia, February 19, 2020 - The second of two Anchor Beach Volleyball Carnival events opens here Thursday with a 24-team men's qualifier to advance six pairs to Friday's money rounds at the FIVB World Tour stop.


The eighth men's event on the 2019-2020 international beach volleyball calendar, the US$25,000 Anchor Beach Volleyball qualifier features six teams that have captured FIVB World Tour gold medals.

Two gold medal-winning pairs meet in the first round on Thursday when 14th-seeded Moritz Kindl/Mathias Seiser of Austria challenge 11th-seeded Armin Dollinger/Simon Kulzer of Germany. It will be the first World Tour meeting between the two teams as the Austrians won their FIVB title last August in Liechtenstein and the Germans last March in India.

Other FIVB gold medal winners competing Thursday are Masato Kurasaka/Kensuke Shoji of Japan (2019 Rubavu, Rwanda), Anton Kislytsyn/Daniil Kuvichka of Russia (2019 Langkawi, Malaysia) and Narongdet Kangkon/Banlue Nakprakhong of Thailand (2019 Boracay, The Philippines) and Denys Denysenko/Vladyslav Iemelianchyk of the Ukraine (2019 Satun, Thailand).

Following Thursday's qualifier, the main draw will feature 24 pool play matches Friday with 16 pairs advancing to Saturday's two rounds of elimination. The semifinals and medal matches will be played Sunday with the winning team sharing the $4,000 first-place prize.

Following the Phnom Penh stop, the FIVB World Tour takes a break for a week before resuming play for a women's-only event March 5-8 in Guam. The men return to action for back-to-back tournaments in Iran (March 3-7 at Bandar Abbas) and Qatar (March 12-15 at Doha). Double gender FIVB events in March are set for Malaysia (March 12-15 at Langkawi), Australia (March 18-22 at Coolangatta) and Mexico (March 25-29 at Cancun).
