Here are some quotes from the articles released by Yahoo Finance News:
“Fans and players can expect the 2012 Cuervo Series to be just as good, and in some cases even better, than last year’s inaugural tour, featuring world-class competition and offering more tour dates, total prize money and overall entertainment than any tour in the U.S. When we returned to professional beach volleyball last year, we made sure to deliver a top domestic tour and come back in a huge way that fans and players have expected from Jose Cuervo, responsibly, since the 70’s when Jose Cuervo became the sport’s first corporate sponsor.” -Brian Radics, Diageo Brand Director, Jose Cuervo
“IMG is pleased to be back in the beach volleyball business. Together with Diageo, Jose Cuervo and USA Volleyball, we delivered in 2011 on the promise to bring back the elite, professional game to the United States. In 2012, with more stops, energetic markets, world-class athletes and a great partner in Jose Cuervo, we are poised for an amazing summer on the beach.” -James Leitz, SVP of IMG Action Sports, owner and operator of the Jose Cuervo Pro Beach Volleyball Series
“The Jose Cuervo Pro Beach Volleyball Series delivers intense competition between some of the best players in the world and an energetic atmosphere where fans are up close to the action. From the opening serve to match point, the experience Jose Cuervo and IMG provide is that of a world-class tournament. My partner, John Hyden, and I are excited to get back competing on the Cuervo Series’ stadium court again.” -Sean Scott, professional beach volleyball player and winner of the 2011 Jose Cuervo Pro Beach Volleyball Series Manhattan Beach Open.
