BSWW Tour Copa Lagos 2015
16 Dec 2015
Fifth edition of BSWW Tour Copa Lagos all set
The festivities for the gem of an event begin on Friday in Lagos, Nigeria and will last until the evening of the 20th
Friday the 19th of December until Sunday, December 20th, will feature fun, parties, sand, and beach soccer for the fifth consecutive year in Lagos, Nigeria. The teams are top-notch and will provide plenty of action and drama. The four International Selections are the hosts, Nigeria, defending champions Cote d'Ivoire, Lebanon, and England. Nigeria won the first three editions of the prized event, but it was the Ivory Coast who dethroned them last year, in a heart-stopping final.
Any event that has run annually for five years has to have built up a great following and respect from the beach soccer world, but Nigeria has gone above and beyond as Lagos and the Cup have become internationally recognized and a dream destination for players, fans, and officials alike. The event has always been a jewel of the region as it rounds out the year where much of the world is in the heart of winter, so the warm paradise is welcomed by all. Copa Lagos does not disappoint the fans and tourists either as there is always a large number of celebrities, VIPs, and musicians, who come for the beach soccer, fashion shows, parties, and concerts. There is something for every kind of aficionado.
The teams have arrived and have already been training and are raring to start battling for the illustrious title. This year, like last year will also feature four elite club teams playing in exhibition matches under the BSWW Tour Copa Lagos umbrella. The teams include three local squads, Pepsi Academy FC, Shooting Stars, and Kano Pillars. Highlighting the club teams is the Catalan giant, who recently won the IV Mundialito de Clubes Beach Soccer 2015 in Rio de Janeiro, FC Barcelona. There will also be a Celebrity Match mixed in all the excitement, which all begins in two days, on Friday the 18th of December, From then until the finale, on Sunday the 20th, www.beachsoccer.com will have all scores, updates, and news.
