Wagrain to host first international Snow Volleyball events since pandemic outbreak
CEV Snow Volleyball European Tour 2021

Luxembourg, January 29, 2021. The Austrian ski resort of Wagrain-Kleinarl will be hosting in mid and late February the first two stops of this year’s CEV Snow Volleyball European Tour and in doing so help resume Snow Volleyball international competition after the long hiatus caused by the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in early 2020.

The European Tour will return to Wagrain for two events on consecutive weekends – February 19-21 and 26-28 – and there could not be any better place for the actual resumption of Snow Volleyball competition since the Austrian resorts is the real ‘birthplace’ of the sport.

Wagrain is indeed where Snow Volleyball unofficial competition started more than 10 years ago and since 2016, the village has continuously been playing host to events held under the umbrella of the CEV and FIVB. Moreover, Wagrain hosted the inaugural Snow Volleyball European Championships in March of 2018 – as well as the very first stop of the FIVB Snow Volleyball World Tour a year later, thus cementing its status of Snow Volleyball stronghold and ‘Mecca’ for all those who love this young and dynamic sport.
