EBVC reviews memorable season and discusses ambitious plans for the future
News from the CEV

Luxembourg, December 18, 2012. The European Beach Volleyball Commission (EBVC) chaired by CEV Vice President Renato Arena got together this past week in Luxembourg City to review the past, busy months and lay down the foundations for another memorable Beach Volleyball season in 2013.
The meeting was opened by CEV Vice President Jan Hronek who expressed – also in the name of CEV President André Meyer who was attending the FIVB Executive Committee in Rio de Janeiro and could hence not join – his congratulations on the tremendous success of the various Beach Volleyball tournaments held in 2012. “This was a great season and not only because of the great results claimed by European pairs” said Mr. Hronek, “but also because all CEV events have turned into a major success via the valuable help provided by the promoters, the EBVC members and all other CEV officials in attendance”. 

EBVC President Renato Arena thoroughly reviewed the 2012 season that included a total of 16 events, with the European Championship Final plus three Masters, 5 Satellites, the various age group Championships (U18, U20 and U23) plus the inaugural CEV Beach Volleyball Continental Cup (with two semis and two finals that took place in May and June).  

As they worked on the calendar for the next year, the EBVC members could eventually finalize the dates for the next edition of the various age group Championships as follows:  
-  U18: August 22-25 in Molodechno (Belarus);
-  U20: August 8-11 in Vilnius (Lithuania);
-  U23: August 15-18 in Varna (Bulgaria).  

As for the 2013 CEV Beach Volleyball European Championship - Final, it was already announced as set to take place in Klagenfurt (Austria) from July 30 through August 4, 2013. The dates of all other CEV events will be fixed and announced only upon release of the final and official FIVB Beach Volleyball calendar for the year 2013.  

As the Commission has decided to focus also on an ambitious development project specifically devoted to the youth, the major points of this action were worked out by the EBVC to be presented to the CEV Board of Administration for approval in late January.  

The qualification process for the 2014 Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing (China) – where Beach Volleyball will debut after missing out on an appearance at the inaugural edition in Singapore – was also discussed by the EBVC. As per the format worked out by the FIVB and agreed with the IOC, 36 teams per gender will compete in Nanjing. One spot is pre-assigned to the host country, six (6) duos per Confederation will qualify and the remaining five spots will be attributed by a YOG tripartite Commission as “universality places”.  

Moreover, the EBVC discussed the latest changes implemented in the FIVB Beach Volleyball events structure and their possible influence on CEV competitions; beside this, proposals were worked out to eventually amend the official regulations prior approval by the CEV Board.
