2023 Season Kick-Off
The 2023 Pro Footvolley Tour, presented by Genius Sports, started with an incredibly exciting Saturday!  First, in the Men’s qualifiers division – Leo Gomes and Thiago Santos fought their way to advance to Sunday.  In addition, winners of the two groups respectively advanced directly.  Those teams were Pedro Lube and Gui Carvalho plus Julio Vera and Fernando Silveira.  Despite not advancing, Carlos Montemor, Thanos Ntousis, Lucca Toledo, Joao Tavares, and visiting Israeli star Dan Feldman all played well.

Mixed Doubles en Fuego!

In the much anticipated, Mixed Doubles – a surprise champion!  To avoid spoiling the broadcasts on BeinSports and other network partners – let’s just leave it at that!  Incredible matches with Argentine sensation Fiorella Pellegrini and a new name to on the tour: Kaitlyn Brunworth!  The American has only been playing footvolley 2 years; but as a top soccer product (from NCAA soccer) – Brunworth quickly proved she belongs amongst the elite women!  The Colorado native is a wonderful addition to the Tour!
