Fans can now book their seats at the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships Rome 2022 as the ticket sales were launched on Monday. The climax of this year's beach volleyball calendar is set to offer plenty of breathtaking sand action and attract numerous viewers to the stands of the iconic Foro Italico stadium.

The 2022 World Championships in Rome are set to get underway just over two months from now. The Italian capital will welcome the world’s best teams in both genders from June 10 through 19. 48 men’s and 48 women’s pairs, with all five continental confederations represented, will compete in a total of 216 matches on the way to determining the new world champions.

It will be the 13th edition of the prestigious competition since its launch back in 1997. Rome will be the first city to host the World Championships for the second time, after 2011, while Italy will be the third country to welcome the event twice, after Austria (Klagenfurt 2001 and Vienna 2017) and Germany (Berlin 2005 and Hamburg 2019) did so earlier.

Rome 2022 happens to be the longest anticipated edition of the World Championships in history. Because of a pandemic-prompted postponement, the event will take place in 2022 instead of 2021, as originally scheduled. So for the first time two consecutive editions of the biennial competition will be held three years apart. However, the memories of the spectacular 2019 World Championships in Hamburg are still alive and the fans are even more eager with anticipation of more beach volleyball emotions of the highest intensity.
