· FIVB men’s and women’s World Championships (2007 and 2009)
Brazilian teams have an unparalleled record in all of the above events. In Volleyball, they are reigning World League, World Grand Prix, World Cup champions, World Champions. This month, the men’s and women’s teams from Brazil also captured the 2005 World Grand Champions Cup in Japan. Brazil also clearly dominates the young and dynamic sport of Beach Volleyball, its teams taking the top 3 men’s slots and the top 2 women’s slots in the 2005 world ranking. The men’s teams won Gold and Silver medals at the Athens 2004 Olympic Games, whilst the women’s teams took Silver and Bronze. Brazil’s men’s and women’s teams also took first and second place respectively at the 2005 World Championships.
Given the huge interest for Volleyball and Beach Volleyball among Brazil’s viewing public, this invitation to tender offers an exciting opportunity to secure coverage of all the world’s major international events and reach out to a large audience in one of the sport’s most important markets.
