After a disappointing postponement due to COVID-19 in 2020, the Global Cup World Senior Volleyball Championships is scheduled to take place August 25 – 30, 2021. The beautiful sea-side city of Loutraki will continue to be the venue for this prestigious, invitation-only tournament. Teams will also continue to represent their home country with only one team per nation allowed in the tournament, but there are a few changes that athletes will want to know.
First and foremost, the 50+ age group has been added so that Greece will host men’s and women’s teams in the 40+, 45+, 50+, 55+ and 60+ age groups. This brings all the available age groups to one location for 2021.
Second, the Global Cup is committed to providing a safe environment for all players, coaches, spectators and the community of Loutraki and has compiled a comprehensive COVID-19 Health Protocol in collaboration with Greek health authorities. Athletes should familiarize themselves with the protocol.
“We’re very excited to move forward with this world renowned event in Loutraki,” said Kyle M Case, CEO of the Huntsman World Senior Games, the rights holder to the Global Cup. “The local organizing committee in Greece has done a tremendous job in the past for the tournament and we are confident that they will be able to pull off it off again with the accommodations that will help to keep us all safe.
