Pools drawn for group stage of #EuroBeachVolley Final
2017 CEV Beach Volleyball European Championship - Final

Riga, Latvia, July 18, 2017. The Drawing of Lots for the pool phase of the 2017 CEV Beach Volleyball European Championship Final took place on Tuesday at the House of the Blackheads in Riga. 32 women’s pairs from 15 different European countries and 32 men’s pairs representing 17 countries found out the names of the three teams they will be playing in the pool stage, which will begin on August 16 at 9:00 at Jurmala’s Majori beach in Latvia.

The 2017 CEV Beach Volleyball European Championship Final participants were divided into eight groups with each pool consisting of four teams. This will be the 25th edition of the tournament for men – and no. 24 for women since the first women’s European Championship took place back in 1994, one year after the men’s premiere in Almeria, Spain. The competition accounts for the largest Beach Volleyball event to have ever taken place in any of the Baltic States – with € 200,000 prize money at stake next to the medals and the much-coveted FIVB / CEV ranking points.

The top eight teams from the entry lists were seeded as heads of the pools, so that they wouldn’t play each other in the group stage. The rest of the participants were divided into five groups and drawn accordingly across the eight pools.

There will be free admission for the first two days of competition, when the group phase matches will be held. Tickets are available at for the weekend – with prices ranging from € 10 for Friday, August 18 to € 15 and 20 for Saturday and Sunday, respectively. The new ‘Kings and Queens of the Beach’ will be crowned on Sunday, August 20. Italy’s Daniele Lupo/Paolo Nicolai and Germany’s Laura Ludwig/Kira Walkenhorst are the defending champions from last year’s competition held in Biel / Bienne, Switzerland.
