WITHDRAWAL AND SANCTIONS

INSURANCE

MEDICAL CONTROLS

APPENDIX

Withdrawal and/or disbanding of teams/athletes entered in the Main Draw is not allowed once the confirmed list has been announced, except in case of “force majeure” or in case an athlete is injured. In such cases, a Medical Certificate or a declaration of good faith must be provided to the FIVB before the beginning of the Technical Meeting of the Main Draw. In case of withdrawal and/or disbanding of teams/athletes entered in the Main Draw once the confirmed list has been announced without any Medical Certificate or declaration of good faith presented at the latest during the Technical Meeting of the Main Draw, the FIVB will apply a USD 3,000 fine. This fine must be paid before the start of the following event in which a team wants to enter (if no events are staged, the fine must be paid no later than 30 days from the notification of the sanction). The proof of the wire must be sent via fax to the FIVB. Athletes in the Main Draw may be replaced by any team member for reasons of “force majeure” for a 30 day period (keeping its Main Draw status) only once during the season, and for one Tournament only. In the event an athlete in the Main Draw is replaced by any team member for reasons of “force majeure” for a second time during the season, the team concerned will then lose its Main Draw status and be automatically placed in the Qualification Tournament.

Withdrawal and/or disbanding of teams/athletes entered in the Qualification Tournament is not allowed once the confirmed list has been announced, except in case of “force majeure” or in case an athlete is injured. In such cases, a Medical Certificate or a declaration of good faith must be provided to the FIVB before the beginning of the Technical Meeting of the Qualification Tournament. In case of withdrawal and/or disbanding of teams/ athletes entered in the Qualification Tournament once the confirmed list has been announced without any Medical Certificate or declaration of good faith presented at the latest during the Technical Meeting of the Qualification Tournament, the FIVB will then apply a USD 500 fine. This fine must be paid before the start of the following event in which a team would like to enter (if no events are staged, the fine must be paid no later than 30 days from the notification of the sanction). The proof of the wire must be sent via fax to the FIVB.

Athletes who have not communicated their travel itineraries to the organizers and who arrive late for the Technical Meeting (i.e after the seeding is made) will be excluded from the event by the FIVB Technical Supervisor for "no show" or fined.

Athletes failing to attend the Technical Meeting and who have not sent via fax the appropriate "force majeure" documents before the start of the event concerned will be sanctioned by the FIVB. Should it be proven that a National Federation is responsible for not communicating to the FIVB a Player’s medical certificate for the withdrawal from an event, the National Federation shall be fined instead of the concerned Player.

No changes between the teams enrolled in the Qualification and Main Draw Tournaments will be made after the beginning of the Technical Meeting of the Qualification Tournament.

The FIVB Web site will be updated after every withdrawal and substitution of players approved by the FIVB once the confirmed list issued

Notification for last minute withdrawals (i.e. on the day of a Technical Meeting) must be sent via fax to the FIVB Beach Volleyball Department (+ 41 21 345 35 48) as well as to the organizers of the event and the FIVB Technical Supervisor at the venue office.

Athletes must have their own liability and medical insurances.
