CAF Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations - Egypt
29 Oct 2018

Egypt to host CAF Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations 2018

The competition will take place in the Egyptian city of Sharm El Sheikh and will act as a qualifier to the 2019 FIFA World Cup in Paraguay


The CAF Africa Beach Soccer Cup of Nations Egypt 2018 is set to return in December 2018, and will take place in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.

The competition will run from the 8th to the 14th of December, and will act also as a qualification to the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup 2019, which, as Beach Soccer Worldwide announced last week, will take place in Paraguay.

The winners and the runners-up of the CAF Africa Beach Soccer Cup of Nations 2018 will qualify to compete in Paraguay.

The eight confirmed teams were split into two groups in a draw held in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, yesterday (Sunday 28th October). 

In Group A are hosts, Egypt, Morocco, Côte d'Ivoire and 2015 competition winners, Madagascar

In Group B are the two most successful teams in the competition, reigning champions, Senegal, and two-time winners, Nigeria, as well as Libya, and debutants, Tanzania.

The tournament will start with a bang when the continent’s most successful national teams, Nigeria and Senegal, go head to head in the opening match on the 8th of December. 

Just a month or so after competing in the Huawei Intercontinental Beach Soccer Cup in Dubai, hosts, Egypt, will open their campaign against Morocco on day one, recreating the third-place play-off of the last edition. Meanwhile, Libya will kick things off against new boys, Tanzania.  

The draw represents something of a baptism of fire for Tanzania, as, having never competed in the CAF Africa Beach Soccer Cup of Nations before, will have to face both Senegal and Nigeria in their fight to make it out of the group stages.

Who do you think will make it to the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup in Paraguay?
