Season’s opening tournament will kick off in Florida
Good news, people! The Swatch Major Series will open the 2017 FIVB World Tour calendar in spectacular style in February when it makes its long-awaited return to Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Not since the Swatch Beach Volleyball FIVB World Tour Finals of 2015 has international beach volleyball action graced the stunning Florida coast, but between 7-12 February 2017, the world’s greatest players will gather again to fight for the first Swatch Major Series title of the season.
It only seems like yesterday when Brazilians Larissa/Talita and Alison/Bruno scooped gold on this very beach in October 2015 – and now both teams will be out to make it back-to-back victories at the Fort Lauderdale Beach Park.
The Swatch FIVB World Tour Finals of 2015 was the first international tournament to be held in Fort Lauderdale and, given the great success and packed capacity crowds, it felt like a no brainer to return to this beautiful part of the United States to kick-start another busy season of digging and diving on the sand.
Once again entry will be absolutely free of charge, so remember to clear your diaries, head down to South Beach Park and catch the best of the action from the greatest players on sand!
Further information can be found here so what are you waiting for? Go and check it out! See you soon, Fort Lauderdale!
