Doha to host beach volleyball tour events for next three years

DOHA: Doha is the latest city to join the outstanding FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour following the confirmation of a two-star tournament for men in 2018 with the possibility of changing to a three-star double gender event in 2019 and 2020.

In an elaborate signing ceremony at the national federation headquarters on the sidelines of the Aspire Qatar Master tournament on Saturday, Qatar Volleyball Federation President Ali Ghanim Al Kuwari signed an agreement with FIVB Beach Volleyball Events Director Angelo Squeo to confirm the three-year deal.

The tournament, which is expected to be held in February or March on the back of the Kish Island tournament in Iran, will be part of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Qualification process and is likely to be staged at the colosseum in the Katara cultural village, which is located on the eastern coast between West Bay and the Pearl in Doha.
