Lausanne, Switzerland, March 27, 2013 – The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) is pleased to announce the confirmation of the competition structure for the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships 2013 which will be held in Stare Jablonki, Poland from July 1 to 7.

Over 100,000 beach volleyball fans are expected to take in the action live, with many more tuning in on television to see if Brazil’s Emanuel Rego and Alison Cerutti can defend their world crown and find out who will succeed Juliana Felisberta da Silva and Larissa França as women’s champions.
