Final U.S. Open teams confirmed
Twelve teams will go head to head in Virginia Beach as part of the NASSC.
The 12 teams who will compete at the U.S. Open in Virginia Beach as part of the North American Sand Soccer Championships have been confirmed, with a mix of old and new set to battle it out in June.
Always a tremendously popular event on America’s east coast - this year’s U.S. Open will run from June 9th to 11th with defending champions Team Pugg hoping to defend their title.
Alexandre Soares’ men lifted the trophy in 2016 after beating FBS FC in the final, with Catalan side FC Barcelona finishing third.
This year, Barca will be coached by Ramiro Amarelle, and they will be joined by a host of America-based teams. HRSC Elite, Tidewater Captains and VB Alliance BSC all hail from Virginia while Team Canada will head south from Toronto to compete.
Completing the line-up are Go Beach Soccer, Great Lakes BSC, Maryzilians, New England FC, Norcal BSC and PA Azzurri.
The NASSC has run for more than 20 years in total and is consistently one of the biggest beach soccer festivals in the calendar, with an array of male and female competitions for all ages.
