Pro Footvolley Tour Signs with Protocol Sports Marketing to Bring Sport’s Newest Trend to Broadcasters and Sponsors Worldwide
Broadcasters worldwide will have an opportunity to bring the summer heat to their audiences as the international media rights for the 2019 and 2020 seasons of the Pro Footvolley Tour will be distributed by Protocol Sports Marketing.
With roots in Brazil, Footvolley combines beach volleyball and football (soccer) to create a new and unique sport where players use a combination of their head, feet, chest and shoulders as opposed to their hands and arms. Footvolley competitions involve stunningly acrobatic rallies paired with highly skilled ball control, dynamic team play and breathtaking beach-side scenery. The Pro Footvolley Tour is widely considered to be the top Footvolley league internationally, and features participating teams from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, USA and beyond; drawing top Footvolley talent from all over the world.
In addition to media rights distribution, Protocol Sports Marketing will also assist with sponsorship sales for the upcoming 2020 Pro Footvolley Tour.
The 2019 broadcast season, available for international broadcast now, includes 20 one-commercial-hour episodes and is televised in the USA by beIN Sports in both English and Spanish.
“The entire World loves the beach, and the Pro Footvolley Tour is a hot property right now,” stated Pro Footvolley Tour President and CEO, Sergio Menezes. “Working with Protocol Sports Marketing, an agency with a proven track record distributing premiere sports properties to major broadcasters worldwide is the perfect fit and perfect timing. Sports fans around the World, like in America, will get hooked on Pro Footvolley Tour!”
President of Protocol Sports, Lowell Conn, has an eye for the future as he discusses the potential for the Pro Footvolley Tour. “With major soccer celebrities now playing footvolley, this trending sport has tremendous potential. Pro Footvolley Tour is the clear leader in this emerging space,” says Conn. “As we begin licensing the 2019 Tour, and preparing for the 2020 Tour, we believe that the demand for Pro Footvolley Tour events will increase internationally. We are excited to kick-start this expansion.”
