Huawei Intercontinental Beach Soccer Cup Dubai 2018
10 Nov 2018

The 2019 Season Launch takes place in Dubai

Players, coaches and beach soccer stakeholders gather for next year's Season Launch in Dubai

Today’s Season Launch saw various developments, announcements and, of course the grand revelation of the beach soccer calendar today, in Dubai’s Grand Millennium Hotel, in the Business Bay district.

In attendance were some of the sport’s most influential, talented and well-known figures, including players, coaches and the top stakeholders.

Addressing the packed conference room were Josep Ponset (Head of Competitions at BSWW), Gabino Renales (Deputy Vic-President of BSWW) and Joan Cuscó (Executive Vice President of BSWW).

The launch was kicked off by Mr. Ponset who revealed the calendar for the BSWW Tour events, which included – as of yet to be 100% confirmed - events in Saudi Arabia, California, Mexico, Portugal and Nigeria.

He then discussed developments in the ways that teams are ranked as well as revealing the Ranking of Women's National Teams, adding that “next year, we hope to release the World Ranking of Women's National Teams."

Mr Renales then cleared up some slight alterations to the Euro Winners Cup, including the change of name of the preliminary qualification stage, which in 2019, will be known as the Euro Winners Challenge (previously, Nazaré Beach Soccer Cup).

“We also want to increase the level of participation”, commented the Deputy Vice-President. “The will be more teams competing than ever.”  

He then went on to introduce the concept of the World Winners Cup, a new club event to take place in Turkey…

“Following an event which took place this October, we feel that Alanya, Turkey is the perfect place for the World Winners Cup, to take place September 23rd until the 29th.”

The event will bring together the world’s best club teams who will do battle for an ultimate global title.

Then it was the turn of Joan Cuscó to share some words on various topics including the potential introduction of VAR into beach soccer, the FIFA Workshop planned for early 2019, and of course, the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup in Paraguay.

To close the meeting, the schedule for the whole season was unveiled to the eager audience and mobile phones flew into the air to take a snap of the calendar on the screen which, as the people gathered were warned, is still subject to change depending on the happenings in the coming year. 

As the meeting drew to a close, the beach soccer personnel filed out of the conference room, and conversation soon turned to the day’s big event… the final of the Huawei Intercontinental Beach Soccer Cup Dubai 2018.
