The 10th edition of the competition will take place on Dubai’s Kite Beach early next year
The 2020 Intercontinental Cup is scheduled to take place in March of 2021, of course following the international directives by the global health authorities. The strong commitment by Dubai Sports Council will see the amazing city of Dubai continue with its position as the global beach soccer epicentre.
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on sports events across the world, with many having to be cancelled altogether, and beach soccer has not been an exception, with a very reduced version of our calendar.
However, the tenth edition of one of the main features in the beach soccer calendar, the Intercontinental Cup in Dubai, will go ahead just a few months after its usual slot in November, after the great work put together jointly by the Dubai Sports Council and Beach Soccer Worldwide.
The eight-team competition, considered the most prestigious yearly competition in the world, will touch down on Dubai’s Kite Beach in March, and national sides from all over the world will return to one of beach soccer’s stronghold cities to do battle for the Intercontinental crown.
It will be the tenth Intercontinental Cup, and the success over the last nine editions have been equally shared by Iran, Brazil and Russia, each holding three titles; can one of them break the stalemate in March?
Moreover, the eleventh (2021) edition should also take place in a return to routine in November of 2021, meaning that we will be treated to two editions in a single year!
More information about the competition will be released closer to the time.
