BSWW Tour - Copa Lagos 2017



The Copa Lagos returns to Nigeria from December 8th to 10th as the hosts take on nations from Europe, Asia and North Africa in an event that always delivers top-quality beach soccer.

A regular fixture in the sport's calendar, Nigeria will go head to head with European rivals Spain as well as Asian side Lebanon and African rivals Morocco during the three-day competition. At the same time the event will showcase a Clubs competition featuring both domestic and international teams.

Hosts Nigeria have happy memories of playing on home sand over the years, notably 2016 when they booked their place at the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup with a run to the final of the African qualifiers.

Spain continue to prove one of the best nations in Europe, having finished fourth during the recent Euro Beach Soccer League Superfinal in Terracina following a defeat on penalties against hosts Italy.

Joaquin Alonso's men boast experience and talent aplenty and will be tipped by many to lift the title in Lagos this year.

In Morocco, Nigeria will come up against a side they knocked out of the CAF Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations 12 months ago.

Despite the Moroccans going down 6-1 to the hosts in the continental semi-finals last year, the men from North Africa remain a talented side and are the continent's fourth highest-ranked country.

Last but not least, Lebanon make their first competitive appearance since a third fourth-place finish at the AFC Beach Soccer Championship in Malaysia earlier this year, where they narrowly missed out on a place at the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup.

Always a tough opponent, Lebanon were beaten in the third-place play-off by Japan but will look to show a similarly strong performance in Lagos for what is one of the strongest line-ups in the competition’s history.

In the club competition, English champions Arsenal BSC make their first overseas appearance against three homegrown teams in the form of Gidi Sharks, Kebbi BSC and Pepsi Football Academy.

Throw in the usual mix of off-field entertainment, vibrant activities and both men’s and women’s celebrity matches and the Copa Lagos is set to excite once again.
