Olympic silver medalists in Tokyo, current world champions and last year’s EuroBeachVolley silver medalists Oleg Stoyanovskiy and Viacheslav Krasilnikov of Russia in Pool G will meet Christiaan Varenhorst and Steven van de Velde of the Netherlands.

In Group D, will be a remake of the match for the gold medal from Moscow in 2019 – where Latvian Anastasija Kravcenoka and Tina Graudina defeated Polish Kinga Wojtasik and Katarzyna Kociolek. Anastasija Kravcenoka and Tina Graudina are the fourth placed team from the Tokyo Olympics. Another interesting match will be the Czech Barbora Hermannova and Marie-Sara Stochlova from the Czech Republic against Karla Borger and Julia Sude from Germany in the Pool E.

From the quarterfinals onwards, all matches will be played on the main court, the newly built Red Bull Beach Arena, located in the heart of the Austrian capital, Heumarkt. The stadium was built on an area of 6,000 m2 and it took almost two months to set up its 460-ton structure.
