Located around the Center Court, the Beach Village, which extends over several thousand square meters, offers the possibility of getting into the action away from the Center Court.

In the Fan Zone, a video wall offers visitors who can’t find a spot in the stadium the opportunity to experience the games live, through public viewing outside the Center Court. But there is also plenty of action in addition to the matches. Attractions like Flying Fox and the Bag Jump can be found in the Beach Village. No matter how old you are, there is something here for everyone.

Both the hospitality of Austrians and the international flavor of the event are reflected. With a wide range of culinary delights available, every beach volleyball fan will find something they like.

If visitors want to bring the experience of beach volleyball in Vienna into the virtual world, social media users will also find exciting opportunities to do just that. Huge social media walls will allow visitors to share their personal messages instantly with the community, so that they too become participants in the event.

Fans of Rauch IceTea won’t get enough this summer – as this year Rauch IceTea will shine with a fresh beach volleyball look. 

Due to the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships 2017 in Vienna, Rauch Fruit Juices will change its bottles into a lovely, summer dress. 

In summer, the theme of beach volleyball will be communicated on almost 16 million bottles, with its big hit being the promotion on Instagram. The packages call for various ‘freeze-challenges’, which will be shared on Instagram. It’s definitely worth participating: every day, participants have the chance to win fancy prices. If you film yourself while being “frozen” (freeze for 10 seconds in an unexpected situation) and post it with the hashtag #freezestyle, you will have the opportunity to get hold of the popular tickets for the Rauch grandstand on the Center Court amongst others.

You can also feel the #freezestyle in the Beach Village – it’s going to be an ice-cold! Despite the hot atmosphere, Rauch puts fruit juices on ice! If you are up for the challenge and jump into cold water at -1°C, you can look forward to great beach goodies.
