Beach Soccer (also known as Sand Soccer and Beach Football), is taking the sporting world by storm. Played on a sand pitch measuring 28×37 metres, it focuses on some of the most spectacular aspects of modern football: skill, agility and, above all, goals.
The unique party atmosphere enjoyed by a beach soccer crowd is maintained during the three-minute breaks between periods, when music and bikini-clad dancing girls keep the entertainment flowing.
Between 1995 and 2009, the Beach Soccer World Cup was an annual event. It is now held every two years. The first 13 tournaments were held in Brazil which is the spiritual home of the sport. Since then it has been in France and the UAE. Future tournaments are going to be in Italy and French Polynesia.
