Beach soccer


May 19, 2022

Beach soccer is a variation of soccer in which the soccer match is played on a beach or on sand courts. Beach soccer emphasizes skill, agility and accuracy because the ball in the sand is difficult to control and moving on the sand is more difficult than other forms of competition. Beach soccer is less expensive, doesn't need a pitch, doesn't need shoes, just a wide sandy beach, a simple goal... everyone can play. Recently, there are many teams participating in beach soccer tournaments in 2 types: domestic and foreign football. For foreign beach soccer tournaments, there are 2 types: Continental beach soccer tournament (AFF Beach Soccer, UEFA Beach Soccer,...) and worldwide beach soccer tournament (FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup). At the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup, teams from other countries will be participating along with the host of the tournament. The tournament is divided into series as follows: The worldwide teams will be divided into 8 groups, each consisting of 4 teams. Each team in each group with the 1st place team plus the best 2nd placed teams will advance to the round of 16, followed by the quarterfinals, semi-finals and finally the final (2 teams losing in the semi-finals). The end will have to compete for 3rd place. The winning team (the team that wins the final) will receive a prize of 50 million USD and the championship trophy, the 2nd place team (the team that loses in the final) will receive 20 million USD. In the 3rd place match, the team that wins that team will receive a bonus of 10 million USD and the team that loses will not receive the reward.

Game rules

Each beach soccer match is attended by two teams, each with no more than five players, one of which is the goalkeeper. Each match is divided into three halves, each lasting 12 minutes with a 3-minute break between the halves. If after the end of the main kick time the score is still tied, the two teams will play extra time within 3 minutes, if still tied, a penalty kick will be taken. In the Laws of Beach Soccer, free kicks cannot be fenced. When it comes to throw-in, players can choose from one of two ways: a throw-in or a throw-in. The birth of beach soccer was an attempt to codify the rules for the sport. This was done in 1992 by the founders of beach soccer around the world. A federation was formed to develop the sport and is responsible for the majority of its leagues to this day. Beach soccer fields are often compact, much smaller than a football field, allowing players to score from anywhere in the sand, goals in a game that is not too difficult. The players (including the goalkeeper) are not allowed to hold the ball for more than 3 seconds, the team that violates will be subject to a penalty of 11m. The playing ball is a spherical ball, 15.5 cm in radius, 16.5 inches long and very soft, made of plastic, and has enough trajectories when the player makes a great hook. Prizes may be established at the most appropriate time; For the world, it is held once every 2 years, while in Southeast Asian countries, it is held every 2 years
