Since 2019, the Chilean duo and National Federation have been benefitting from coach and volleyball equipment support under the FIVB’s revolutionary programme of Volleyball Empowerment. The FIVB recently increased its investment in beach volleyball in Chile, providing beach volleyball and nets after the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, in addition to further coach support, which has all contributed towards the team’s recent successes.
The next round of the circuit is scheduled for 10-12 February in San Juan, Argentina. The competition is set to be hotly contested, with points counting towards the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Ranking. Points are in high demand with the Olympic Games Paris 2024 on the horizon, while teams are also vying for a place at the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships 2023 set for Mexico on 6-15 October.
