FIVB Beach Volleyball grows TV viewership, revenues

MUMBAI

: The FIVB has announced that its inaugural year in partnership with sports, entertainment and media company IMG has returned strong television numbers for the 2009 Swatch FIVB World Tour
and the 2009 Swatch FIVB World Championships in Stavanger, Norway.


With two Swatch FIVB World Tour events still to be held, Beach Volleyball worldwide total revenues in 2009 are already 180 per cent higher than in 2007 - the last year in which the Beach Volleyball World Championships and World Tour were played together, and 130 per cent higher than in 2008 when just the World Tour was played.


FIVB president Jizhong Wei said “The appeal of Beach Volleyball for television has been strong for a number of years however these outstanding figures represent a new era for the sport in terms of exposure and accessibility for Beach Volleyball fans worldwide”.






“These achievements are particularly relevant in the context of the current economic downturn which has seen the collapse and default of many broadcasters worldwide. Such achievements in the development of Beach Volleyball are the result of the FIVB’s new global approach including a new television strategy which has revolutionized the way Beach Volleyball is presented on television.


"In addition, all FIVB Beach Volleyball organizers have contributed a lot towards the growth of the overall system and this was especially evident with the 2009 Swatch FIVB World Championships recently held in Stavanger, which was the most successful Beach Volleyball World Championships in FIVB history.”
