Between April 14 and 16, the Costa del Sol National Stadium will host the El Salvador Beach Soccer Cup 2022, a tournament that will bring together the best of beach soccer and will be organized by the National Sports Institute (INDES) and Beach Soccer Worldwide, with the support of the Salvadoran Football Federation (Fesfut).
The tournament will be made up of four men’s and four women’s teams, which will be the ones that will compete for the trophy in both categories. With this, the country will once again be the scene of an international beach soccer tournament, after it was set aside in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the country and around the world.
The last time that El Salvador hosted and vibrated with a beach soccer competition was in August 2019, when the qualifier for the World Beach Games (World Beach Games) took place at the International Center for Fairs and Conventions (Cifco), where 12 teams from the Concacaf area competed.
The ad honorem president of INDES, Yamil Bukele, expressed his satisfaction after El Salvador was chosen again to host a high-level beach soccer event. «It is a pride and an honor. This reiterates our commitment to this sport, one of our commitments as a government,” the official emphasized.
