Euro Winners Cup – Record-breakers

A showcase of the top performers in Euro Winners Cup history

The very best beach soccer talent from around the world have performed at the Euro Winners Cup through the years, so let’s take a look at the players who have truly cemented their place in the competition’s history.

The Ultimate MVP
Brazilian attacker, Mauricinho holds the record for the most MVP awards won in the men’s competition – taking home the trophy on four separate occasions (2017, 2018, 2020 & 2021).

He was a Euro Winners Cup winner on three of those occasions (2017, 2020 & 2021) with SC Braga and BSC Kristall.

Star-Studded Strikers
Mélissa Gomes’ goalscoring record in the Women’s Euro Winners Cup is something to behold. The Portuguese native has been the top scorer three times in the competition (2018, 2019, 2022), being the only player to do so.

She also holds the incredible record of being the only player across the men’s and women’s competitions to have won the top scorer award playing for three different teams, being French sides CSO Amnéville BS (2018), Stade de Reims (2019), and Marseille BT (2022).

Gabriele Gori has been a goalscoring machine throughout his Euro Winners Cup career. The Italian attacker currently holds the record for the most goals scored in a single Euro Winners Cup competition, as he fired home 26 goals in the 2019 tournament.

Alongside this incredible feat, Gori has been the top scorer the most times in the men’s Euro Winners Cup history, securing top spot three times (2016, 2017, 2019).

Glorious Goalkeepers
Anna Akylbaeva leads the way with the most Best Goalkeeper awards in the Women’s Euro Winners Cup. Winning the award in two consecutive competitions (2020 & 2021), Akylbaeva played a crucial part in Zvezda’s journey to the Euro Winners Cup 2021 final.

Ukrainian shot stopper, Vitalii Sydorenko won the first Best Goalkeeper award in Euro Winners Cup history, representing Griffin in 2013, and also holds the record for the most Best Goalkeeper award wins in the history of the competition.

He added two more awards to his name in the Euro Winners Cup 2016 and 2017, representing BSC Artur Music, to take his total up to three.

The Euro Winners Cup Nazaré 2024 gets started with the men’s competition on the 9th June and the Women’s Euro Winners Cup will start on the 10th June, with both of these tournaments ending on 16th June.
