MAR DEL PLATA READY TO HOST THE CONTINENTAL CUP

This Friday and Saturday the international beach volleyball will return to Mar del Plata after 8 years with the Continental Cup organized by the South American Volleyball Confederation. The first stage of the tournament will qualify for the final phase towards the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. The Argentine pairs composed by Nicolás Capogrosso/Julián Azaad and Mauro Zelayeta/Bautista Amieva will compete with Colombia and Ecuador.

With the objective of the Olympic Games ahead, the Continental Cup appears as a key commitment for the Argentines, that this weekend at home will try to take one of the berths for the final phase. The tournament will be defined between June 22 and 28 between the four countries of the continent that reach the last stage and will award a quota for Tokyo 2020.

The Men's Continental Cup began with Group C in Chile qualifying the locals to the final phase after winning their pool. Now, the action moves to Mar del Plata, specifically to the Biology Club, to receive two spectacular days of beach volleyball. There, Argentina will meet two pairs from Colombia and two from Ecuador, since Guyana won't participate due to financial matters.

The Argentine National Team will play on Saturday against the winner of Colombia and Ecuador with the matches 3 and 4 with live broadcast of DeporTV for the whole country.
