Joan Cusco, Beach Soccer Worldwide Executive vice-president, celebrates having Dubai as the perfect host for such important events: “We have always said that Dubai is our home. It offers beach soccer the best possibilities, an amazing setting and a never-ending range of possibilities, together with a proven success record in the last decade thanks to the excellent job and vision of the Dubai Sports Council, with H.H. Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al-Maktoum ahead. Every single person we ask, everyone we invite, is absolutely delighted to come to Dubai. Everybody loves it here”.  

In the fifth edition of the Intercontinental Cup, focus will be on the pitch and on the beautiful skyline shaping the picture behind stadium, beginning on Tuesday the 3rd. The tournament brings together eight teams and the best in the world at that.
