The ASICS World Series of Beach Volleyball is an unprecedented event, bringing together the world’s best beach volleyball players, chart-topping musical artists, cutting-edge brands, and a host of beach-related activities for an epic week of elite competition and fun in the sun. This year’s event takes place just days after closing ceremonies at the 2016 Rio Games, so the fourth annual WSOBV serves as both an end-of-summer party for beach lovers of all ages and a welcome home party for our USA and international beach volleyball Olympians.
The cornerstone of the ASICS WSOBV is the FIVB Long Beach Grand Slam, a premiere stop on the world’s preeminent beach volleyball tour. The weeklong tournament features the best players on the planet, including Olympic medalists and World Champions, competing for their share of one of the top prize purses in the world.
The WSOBV Music Festival powered by iHeartRadio features live performances by a handful of America’s top recording artists. Between matches, TrueCar Stadium Court is transformed into a rock n’ roll arena as bands like American Authors, Magic, Adam Lambert and Capital Cities take the stage and light up the crowd.
The ASICS World Series of Beach Volleyball is proud to have NBC as our broadcast partner for the fourth consecutive year. NBC provides hours of live coverage, bringing the most important matches of this FIVB Grand Slam tournament right to your living room on their fully integrated network of television and online channels.
