The city of Göteborg will host the final NEVZA Beach Volleyball tournament of the year, as the so-called NEVZA Beach Sweden will take place November 3-5 in the world’s largest indoor Beach Volleyball arena.
The 2023 NEVZA Beach Volleyball season concludes as the tour moves on to Göteborg, Sweden, for the final event of the year. Göteborg Beachvolley Club (GBC) and the Swedish Volleyball Federation are happy and honoured to once again host a NEVZA Beach Volleyball tournament. Some of Northern Europe’s most talented and competitive teams will have the chance to travel to Sweden’s second largest city to fight for the top honours at the Beach Center, the world’s biggest indoor Beach Volleyball arena.
NEVZA Beach Sweden will take place side by side with a mass participation Beach Volleyball event called Halloween Cup, in which some 400 players will enter the sand. Therefore, both elite and amateur players will get to inspire each other and at the same time exemplify how Beach Volleyball as a sport is both lifelong and for everyone.
”We are excited to host another NEVZA Zonal Event in Göteborg during the Swedish Halloween-weekend. It has developed into a yearly and much-appreciated happening which is anticipated by both players and the crowd alike. To have an elite competition like NEVZA Beach Sweden being played in parallell with recreational tournaments creates synergy effects and a festive ambience with a lot of people on the move in the arena complex. The elite players will inspire others and at the same time offer great entertainment”, says Sandra Krook, Tournament Director at Göteborg Beachvolley Club.
”We are currently working aimfully to implement different international events in Sweden and in this context it is important to have strong and experienced local organisers like Göteborg Beachvolley Club. The tournament in Göteborg also creates an oppurtunity for Swedish players to gain experience from playing against international competition and at the same time it can inspire them to strive for the Beach Pro Tour”, says Simon Dahl, General Secretary at the Swedish Volleyball Federation.
The event will feature a total of 16 men’s and 16 women’s teams and will for sure see several Swedish duos challenge for the medals on home soil. During last year’s edition of the tournament, Swedish teams occupied four out of six spots on the podium.
Beach Center is a non-profit organisation owned and run by Göteborg Beachvolley Club, which is the biggest Beach Volleyball club in Sweden. The centre offers great event and training opportunities all year around and has 16 warmed up indoor courts and another 12 outdoor courts as well as a fitness centre and a restaurant.
For the players: There will only be 16 teams per gender and no qualification. Registration is made through the players’ national federations. See the regulations for further information regarding registering, wild cards, etc. Also see Documents and forms page.
