Dear Beach Volleyball Community

So far, we only knew a scenario like the current one from the fiction of various apocalypse movies. In reality, of course, none of us really have any idea how to deal with it. Only one thing unites us in this challenging time: the certainty that we have to put down everything that is not directly related to the elimination of the virus. A logical conclusion that, however, has a dramatic impact on all of us.

Experts are now predicting that the pandemic will peak in July and August. And that, in turn, means for us that currently, nobody can assume the responsibility to approach the implementation of the planned events with a clear conscience and with full conviction. After extensive discussions with the International Federation, our sponsors as well as partners and representatives from the cities of Vienna and Hamburg, we decided to cancel the two Major tournaments. And we can no longer contribute to the upgrade of the event in Gstaad.

We are sad to announce this decision. At the moment, we only have hope that the global crisis will soon subside and be under control. Then we will start the work to realize our events in 2021 with full energy and unwavering commitment.

My thanks go to everyone who has shared and supported our enthusiasm for beach volleyball over the past 25 years. I firmly believe that we will be able to provide proof of our subline again next year:

Goosebumps don't lie - See you @ the Beach!

This year’s #ViennaMajor’s success served to prove the fact that beach volleyball has a secure place on the Danube Island. The minute the golden confetti burst down on to the Red Bull Beach Arena sand, and the champagne showers concluded, everyone’s first thought was how long until we return to the island?

Both fans and players alike who attended the five star, walked away having had the experience of a lifetime, making lifelong friends and memories that will be forever cherished. Beach volleyball at the highest level.

But putting together an event of this scale involves loads of helping hands, and our volunteers, all 171 of them, were the secret behind the events success.

Every person in a green or blue shirt that smiled at you, helped you find your way, welcomed you to the event, answered your questions, gave you a behind-the-scenes look into the event, stood in the sun for hours, kept score, helped in organization, and kept the match balls are the real heroes of the event. And WE know this!

So on behalf of the Beach Volleyball Major Series team, we’d like to say a huge THANK YOU! You guys are incredible!!!
