Important Notes at the Challenging Times of COVID-19 Pandemic

The global COVID-19 outbreak has had a significant impact on Beach Volleyball and the movement and travel restrictions imposed by governments have resulted in the suspension of the World Tour Calendar.

With restrictions gradually relaxing in Europe the CEV, respective National Federations and event organizers are working in delivering events in accordance with the guidance of medical experts, government and public health authorities.

The health and safety of athletes, coaches, officials and fans remain the top FIVB and CEV priority, and both parties are working on developing guidelines for beach volleyball competition restart that will be shared to all interested parties at a later stage.

Further to above, it is important for all participants to study the below points carefully:

The Slovenian government allows a list of nationalities to enter the country without restrictions (last updated on 03rd July 2020), Link: https://www.nijz.si/en/list-countries-crossing-national-borders-without-restrictions

Considering the changing environment and the constantly updating travel restrictions imposed by National Authorities across the world, the FIVB and CEV have decided to waive any sanctions to withdrawals due to such restrictions up to the last minute withdrawal stage of the competition (5 days before the start date of the 2020 World Tour).
