Munich/Hamburg, 9 January 2019. CTS EVENTIM, an internationally leading provider of ticketing and live entertainment, is the official ticketing partner for the 2019 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships, which will take place from 28 June to 7 July 2019 at Hamburg’s ‘Am Rothenbaum’ Stadium. CTS EVENTIM exclusively markets tickets for all ten match days. This covers the women’s as well as the men’s competition.
Julian de Grahl, Managing Director EVENTIM Sports, commented: ‘We are very excited to be contributing to the success of yet another top-class sports event. Being a part of the Beach Volleyball World Championship, along with four other world championships in 2019, is both recognition and incentive for us. We thank the organisers for their trust in our products and services, and are already filled with eager anticipation of an exciting tournament in front of packed stands.’
During the Beach Volleyball World Cup 2019, 48 teams will play for prize money totalling one million euros. All matches will take place in the historic Am Rothenbaum stadium in Hamburg's Harvestehude district, where the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour Finals were already held in 2017 and 2018. As many as 11,500 spectators will be seated in the stadium on every tournament day during the upcoming World Championships.
Reinhard Lischka, COO of the tournament’s organiser Beach Majors GmbH, gave the rationale behind the decision for CTS EVENTIM: ‘The 2019 Beach Volleyball World Cup is one of the absolute sporting highlights of the year. We want to present the world with the exuberant atmosphere that surrounds this fascinating event while also making the visit to ‘Am Rothenbaum’ as convenient as possible for all fans. Which is why, in CTS EVENTIM, we have chosen a partner whose outstanding reach not only will help us to fill the stands, but who have convinced us with their expertise regarding international sporting events.’
CTS EVENTIM has handled the ticketing for many renowned major sporting events in the past, including the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro (2016) and Sochi (2014), the IIHF Men’s Ice Hockey World Championships in Russia (2016) and Germany/France (2017) and, a few months ago, the FIVB Men’s Volleyball World Championships in Bulgaria and Italy. In 2019, CTS EVENTIM will serve as the ticketing partner for the IHF Men’s Handball World Championships (which start tomorrow), the FIL Luge World Championships (Germany), the FIS Alpine Ski World Championships (Sweden), and the FIS Nordic Ski World Championships (Austria).
