All eyes on Casablanca and Linz this weekend
The BSWW Tour heads to Morocco and Austria as the beach soccer season continues apace.
Casablanca and Linz will host this weekend’s beach soccer action with the former welcoming the Morocco Beach Soccer Cup while the latter sees the return of the Nations Cup.
On a rare weekend with not one but two top-class beach soccer events, the Morocco Beach Soccer Cup gets underway first on Friday in Casablanca as the hosts take on Switzerland, England and the Netherlands.
Morocco have not been in competitive action since their fourth-place finish at the CAF Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations in December while the Dutch team are also returning for the first time since their continental qualifier for the competition in Jesolo last year.
Switzerland and England have both seen plenty of action in 2017, the former reaching the quarter-finals of the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup while also having featured in the second Euro Beach Soccer League stage in Nazaré this month.
England have not only played in events in Turkey and Cape Verde, they warmed up for their trip to Morocco with two friendlies against Germany, culminating in one win and one loss.
In Linz, Austria and Hungary are making their first competitive outings of 2017 and go up against the Czech Republic and Norway.
Both the Czechs and the Norwegians were in action during the opening stage of the Euro Beach Soccer League last month and will hope to build on their displays in Belgrade.
