COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Teams have been selected and announced for an exhibition beach volleyball event, hosted by Management Plus Enterprises (MPE). The tournament will be in Long Beach, California, from July 13-16.

The Long Beach Presidents Cup will feature eight USA teams, selected by MPE, per gender, versus another eight international teams. Matches will air on ESPN Networks throughout the tournament.

As an exhibition tournament, it is not a part of the FIVB World Tour and does not offer points toward Tour rankings. Instead, the format features a USA versus The World format, which brings the top players from the U.S. and internationally to the Southern California area.

Format of play will begin with two pools of four USA teams, and two pools of four international teams. The top two teams from each pool will advance to a single elimination bracket, with the USA teams on one side of the bracket and the international teams on the other, resulting in USA vs international medal matches.

The tournament will be broadcasted on ESPN starting July 13 with both men's and women's pool play. Thursday and Friday morning will both air on ESPN3, while the matches at 2 and 3 p.m. PT on July 14 will go live on ESPN2. Saturday's women's semifinals will air live on ESPN2, bronze medal on ESPN3 and final on ESPN. On Sunday, July 16, the men's bronze medal match will be shown on ESPN3, and final live on ESPN2. Click here to view the entire TV schedule.
