Check Out The Swatch FIVB World Tour Beach Volleyball Stadium Going Up At Fort Lauderdale Beach Park
You may have noticed the construction along Fort Lauderdale Beach in the past week.
That's a 4,000-person beach volleyball stadium being built for the Swatch FIVB World Tour Finals next week.
The international beach volleyball tournament is taking place Sept. 29 through Oct. 4, and an estimated 30,000 people are expected to pack the new Center Court stadium throughout the six-day event.
To catch you up on what's going down, 10 men's and 10 women's teams have made it to the Swatch FIVB World Tour Finals in Fort Lauderdale, where spectators can look forward to music, food, drinks dancing and an interactive vendor village. Nearby B Ocean Resort will host the tournament’s players—all of whom are Olympic-caliber athletes.
The Center Court stadium will offer free seating on a first-come, first-served basis, but VIP tickets starting at $779 per day are available online now.
Here are photos of the work in progress, courtesy of the tournament:
