CEV delegation visits Moscow for site visit and work meeting
CEV EuroBeachVolley 2019

Moscow, Russia, March 15, 2019. The anticipation is mounting ahead of this year’s #EuroBeachVolley with the continental showpiece for Beach Volleyball due to take place from August 5 to 11 at the iconic Luzhniki Sports Complex in Moscow (see picture). CEV Board of Administration member Achilleas Mavromatis and CEV Supervisor Laos Lukas were at the helm of a CEV delegation that visited Moscow earlier this week to meet with representatives of the Russian Volleyball Federation and the Directorate of Sports and Entertainment Events of the Moscow Government.

The programme included a visit to the exclusive Ritz Carlton Hotel, only a few steps away from the Red Square, which will be hosting the Drawing of Lots scheduled for June 19, 2019 that will distribute the 32 teams per gender across eight pools to set the tone for the first stage of the competition.

The exclusive Ritz Carlton Hotel will be the venue for the #EuroBeachVolley DOL after previously hosting the 2017 European Volleyball Gala.

The CEV crew including Beach Volleyball Coordinator George Gagalis and CEV Sports Events Coordinator Annalisa Conti paid a visit to the AZIMUT Hotel Smolenskaya, where teams and officials will be staying during #EuroBeachVolley, and especially to the iconic Luzhniki Sports Complex, where the actual tournament will be taking place at a purpose-built stadium.

Next to the site visits, a coordination meeting helped the CEV and local Organising Committee allocate tasks and discuss a number of operational items including accommodation and transportation, ticketing, promotion and communication, entertainment as well as the Drawing of Lots.

#EuroBeachVolley returns to Moscow for the first time since the 2005 edition – while the last time the continental showpiece took place in Russia dates back to 2009 when Sochi hosted the event on the shores of the Black Sea.
