Fifteen years of beach soccer in Italy

By Cosimo Sibilia, president of the Lega Nazionale Dilettanti


Cosimo Sibilia is President of Lega Nazionale Dilettanti


It’s been fifteen intense years, constantly growing as we have moved on, learnt and developed; fifteen unforgettable seasons for all those who believed in a dream which has come true. The years go by, but the FIGC-LND Beach Soccer stays young thanks to all of those improvements and new additions that have propelled the Italian summer’s favourite sport. 

The Lega Nazionale Dilettanti saw, when many did not, the potential of this sport, that has added a breath of fresh air to the football world, involving the fans during summer. It is something tht I saw myself in my first day at the job, reckoning Beach Soccer’s capacity to reach places and moments that no other sport can. 

During summer, beach soccer, which represents a unique combination of intensity and spectacle, gives its Italian fans the time of their lives, with the great stars in the Serie A bringing mind-blowing skills, spectacular goals and extending the sports season when football takes a deserved rest”.

With beach soccer, LND’s football covers the whole year, entertaining the fans during summer. In fifteen years, this sport has made giant steps and it still has space in which to grow and improve. 

Precisely that is why the LND have always firmly believed in beach soccer, which has been much more of a reality than a project for many years, managing to integrate the Beach Soccer Department within the Federal statutes. 

As we already mentioned, there is still room for much improvement, at all levels, and we are already thinking on new ways to foster the growth of this amazing game, something we will not stop doing.
