Baden to host Youth Continental Cup Final with tickets to 2018 Youth Olympics at stake
2017-2018 CEV Youth Beach Volleyball Continental Cup

Luxembourg, December 19, 2017. The final stage of the 2017-2018 CEV Youth Beach Volleyball Continental Cup will be taking place in Baden, Austria from June 8 to 10, 2018. The rising stars in European Beach Volleyball will perform on a truly iconic stage at the local Strandbad, right in the outskirts of Vienna, since Baden has become throughout the years one of the most popular places across Europe when it comes to the organisation of elite Beach Volleyball competitions. The event scheduled for early June 2018 will determine the European contingent – five teams per gender – for the Beach Volleyball competition of the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

A Beach Volleyball competition of international calibre will be taking place in Baden for the fourteenth time when 16 countries per gender take to the sand to fight for a much-coveted ticket to Buenos Aires, where Beach Volleyball will feature on the programme of the Youth Olympics for the second time after its debut at Nanjing 2014.

The organisation of the Youth Continental Cup Final cements Austria’s status as one of Europe’s Beach Volleyball ‘Meccas’ with Baden having hosted earlier in 2017 a highly successful U22 European Championship followed by a double-gender European Masters only one week later.

Following completion of the qualification stage held in 2017 involving a record-breaking 38 and 41 countries for men and women, respectively, the following 16 nations are due to compete in Baden:

Men: Austria, Belarus, Czech Republic, England, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Turkey, Ukraine.

Women: Austria, Czech Republic, England, France, Greece, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Ukraine.  

Baden will be hosting the second edition of the Youth Continental Cup Final – after Antalya, Turkey played host to the inaugural event in 2014.

The teams eventually qualified for the 2018 Youth Olympics will be trying to extend Europe’s success story in the competition since Russia’s Artem Yarzutkin/Oleg Stoyanovskiy won gold at Nanjing 2014 while Germany’s Lisa Arnholdt/Sarah Schneider settled for the bronze medal in the women’s tournament.
