Beach Soccer World Cup
BEACH SOCCER WORLD CUP
In 2008, the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup will be held outside of its birthplace of Brazil, namely in the French city of Marseilles. The following year, in 2009, the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup will move to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. “When we began our involvement in beach soccer, the idea of the World Cup leaving Brazil was more than a goal – it was a dream. I’m very proud that this dream has now come true. It proves that this sport is continuing to grow,” said Joan Cusco, a member of the FIFA Futsal and Beach Soccer Committee and a founding member of Beach Soccer Worldwide.
