European Beach Volleyball Championships live stream 2022: teams, pools, schedule
Anders Mol and Christian Sorum are the dominant pairing in men’s beach volleyball, but as the Olympic champions set off in pursuit of a fifth consecutive European title, it’s their family and friends that look best placed to trip them up. Anders’ brother, Hendrik, and cousin and former playing partner, Mathias Berntsen, have been drawn into the same pool, and having always been overshadowed by their kin, things promise to get very tasty if they’re forced to face off. Here’s how to watch a 2022 European Beach Volleyball Championships live stream wherever you are right now.

Switzerland’s Nina Betschart and Tanja Hüberli are the reigning champions in the women’s tournament, which is packed with winners from the recent past. Betschart and Hüberli’s compatriots Joana Heidrich and Anouk Vergé-Dépré captured gold two years ago, while Latvia’s 2018 champions Tīna Graudiņa and Anastasija Kravčenoka are also in contention.
The locals will be getting behind Svenja Müller and Cinja Tillmann, who won bronze in Rome in June, as well as Kira Walkenhorst and Louisa Lippmann. Walkenhorst won gold for Germany in Rio, the home of beach volleyball, six years ago, and officially retired from the sport in 2019, but she’s been granted a wildcard for Munich 2022.
A prospective battle of the Mol brothers isn’t the only family affair on the cards. Italian sisters Viktoria and Reka Orsi Toth share a pool with Viktoria’s former playing partner Marta Menegatti and her new teammate Valentina Gottardi.

Watch a European Beach Volleyball Championships live stream from outside your country
If you’re currently abroad and struggling to tune in – or if you just want the comfort and language of your home nation’s coverage – then geo-restrictions may stand in your way of getting a European Beach Volleyball Championships live stream.
That’s where the broadcaster prevents you from watching your usual feed from abroad. It’s a common problem for sports fans all over the world. By downloading and installing a VPN, you can effectively trick your computer into thinking that it’s back at home.

Can you watch the 2022 European Beach Volleyball Championships in the US, Canada and Australia?
Sadly, there’s no confirmed broadcaster for the 2022 European Championships in the US, Canada or Australia at the time of writing.
However, in some countries, select events are being live streamed on the Munich 2022 YouTube channel (opens in new tab), the European Championships Facebook page (opens in new tab), and the European Championships Dailymotion channel (opens in new tab).
Unfortunately, at the time of publication, a full breakdown of the events that will be live streamed on the platforms and where they’ll be available hasn’t been provided.
Another alternative is to use one of the best VPN service providers to tap into coverage from another nation, as described above.
The software is generally ideal for this as it allows you to change your IP address and appear to be in a completely different location – and all through a safe, encrypted connection. But do bear in mind that most paid streaming services do require a credit card based in the same country as the service.
