DirectRooms.com – 2010 FIVB World Grand Prix comes to Hong Kong from 20 to 22 August
DirectRooms.com is pleased to announce that Hong Kong will host the 2010 FIVB World Grand Prix women’s volleyball tournament.
This year’s event will be held from August 20th to the 22nd at the Hong Kong Coliseum.
The FIVB World Grand Prix is an international competition that has been held since 1993 and draws teams from all over the world including China, Thailand, Germany, Cuba, and the USA.
In 1993, the FIVB developed the women’s World Grand Prix in an effort to promote the sport internationally. The tournament was modelled after the World League, a successful men’s event that had been introduced in 1990.
The women’s competition is extremely popular in East Asia, though its reputation is spreading throughout the world. Today, the event is largely supported by Asian investors and sponsors.
With a prize budget of nearly $1.5 million (US), the 2010 FIVB World Grand Prix promises to inspire serious, spirited competition among tournament participants.
The match schedule varies, as do ticket prices. Those interested in attending this year’s event can visit http://www.vbahk.org.hk/ for more information.
Lek Boonlert, head of marketing at DirectRooms.com, anticipates quite a crowd at this year’s competition.
“The FIVB World Grand Prix is a very popular sporting event in East Asia,” Boonlert said. “We at DirectRooms.com expect cheap Hong Kong hotels (http://directrooms.com/china/hotels/hong-kong-hotels/price1.htm) to fill up rather quickly as the tournament weekend approaches.”
Boonlert recommends booking accommodation early to ensure maximum availability and the most affordable rates.
