Euro Beach Soccer League Terracina 2013
12 Jun 2013
Terracina, ready for the second round
The Italian seaside resort hosts this weekend the second stage of the Euro Beach soccer League 2013, with 12 teams involved
The Euro Beach Soccer League train heads for its second stop in this 2013. And it is not an unknown stop. For the second consecutive year, the core competition of the continental Beach Soccer gets to Terracina (Italy) for a new chapter of the fight between the top teams in the Old Continent.
Again this year, the Terracina stage will become a double-ring event in itself, as two Division A groups will be competing at the Lungomare Mateotti Stadium. Eight Top Division teams, comprising World Champions Russia, EBSC runner-ups Portugal and hosts Italy, among others, will contest to earn the points that would them closer to the EBSL Superfinal, with Ukraine needing only one victory to seal their place in the continental decider, after the six points collected in the season?s opening.
At the same time, Germany, Belarus and Netherlands will have their first taste of Division A pace, after the new format allowed them join the elite.
In the Division B pool, Hungary, Turkey, Azerbaijan and Israel will vie for their chance to get into the Promotion Final, which will pass sentence, next September 8th-11th, on who gets to Division A for the next season.
With this new top-notch event, Terracina reassures its position as one of the most important Beach Soccer venues in Europe. A traditional Italian Beach Soccer resort, home to the current Italian Serie A champions and having successfully hosted last year?s opening EBSL stage and the final of the Coppa Italia, the heart of the Latina province has quickly become an Internationally well-know arena, and will for sure offer the best frame for a new thriller this mid June.
