From October 15 to 20, 2013, the city of Betim in Brazil will take centre stage when it holds the men's edition of the FIVB Club World Championships. This is the second time a Brazilian city hosts the competition after Saõ Paulo in 1991.
Betim is located in the metropolitan area of Belo Horizonte in the state of Minas Gerais.
This is the home of one of the most succesful Brazilian clubs, Sada Cruzeiro. Created in the city of Betim by Sada Group in 2006, the team established a successful union with Cruzeiro Esporte Clube, a traditional Brazilian football club with eight million supporters, in 2009. This helped Sada Cruzeiro gain one of the largest volleyball audiences in the country, with a passionate fan-base. This support has translated into success on the court with the latest being a second place finish in last year's Men's Club World Championship and in the 2012/2013 Brazilian SuperLiga.
The competition will take place at the Multisport Fitness Divine Braga (Ginásio Poliesportivo Divino Braga) in Betim, which is one of the most modern competition halls in the country.
Capacity: up to 7,000 spectators
Address: Rua Redelvim Andrade, nº300 Bairro Angola – Betim - MG
