Beach Village

18.07.2019 - Vienna

On several thousand square metres around the Red Bull Beach Arena, the Beach Village invites guests of the A1 Major Vienna – presented by Swatch – to round off the sporting experience with exciting action, entertainment and information. In addition, fans will have the opportunity to watch matches live on a large video wall at the public viewing, e.g. at the legendary Swatch Truck.


Who has the best balance? You can find out at one of our most popular attractions, the A1 Jumper, where up to 6 people can compete at the same time.

This year we've come up with something very special – we extended the A1 stand by one floor. From up there you have a very special view over the whole Beachvillage and you can additionally play in the A1 eSports Area at the stages.

You've become curious? Just stop by the A1 stand. Meet the A1 Beach Volleyball Stars and get your personal autograph and other giveaways like the A1 Tank Top or the A1 Trucker Cap. You can get more information directly at the A1 stand in the Beach Village. 

PS: Look forward to Saturday, because there you have the chance to experience the A1 Mario Kart Cup on stage and afterwards a live music act "hosted by A1 Xplore Music".

Benefitting from the table's curved shape, Teqvoly isn't only a fast and dynamic sport to play, but it also serves as an enjoyable spectacle for its audience.
