The NASSC, the “world Cup” of amateur, pro/am sand soccer

Welcome to the exciting world of soccer on the sand and beautiful Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA! If you enjoy sun, sand and surf with your soccer – this IS the place to be June 6-8, 2014.

Get Ready for Ultimate Beach Ball!

Ten thousand players will rock the Virginia Beach oceanfront June 6-8 when the 21st edition of the Championships returns to one of the nation’s top resort cities.

The game, played on 25-35 or 30-40 yard grids, is 5v5 and fast-paced, with limited dribblin’ and laser shots on goal.  Over 80 brackets are seeded to support all levels of play – from the beginner to the most professional. Much like beach volleyball, sand soccer‘s rules are easy to pick up. Uniforms for this beach bash are “anything-goes”.

This “Gran Prix” of international amateur beach soccer events is hard to miss and attracts teams from all over, including nearly 20 states and as far away as Africa, Germany, Brazil, Norway’s rocky seacoasts, the Caribbean and the wilds of Canada’s Northwest Territories. The Championships are staged over 22 full City blocks of prime oceanfront real estate, on over mile and a half of white sand – against a backdrop of diving gulls, banners waving  the ocean breezes, thousands of Boardwalk bedazzled spectators, live music and great food. Meanwhile, surf’s up just a few steps from the soccer action and, when day is done, most participants and fans head out to the area’s unbelievable lineup of region entertainment.
