The event will take place in Bali, Indonesia, from the 6th until the 12th August 2023 and the Association of National Olympic Committees has defined the qualification system.
The qualification system for the ANOC World Beach Games 2023 has been announced.
The Men’s tournament will be composed by 16 teams, while the Women’s competition will have 12 teams disputing the title.
Five continental qualification tournaments will be held until 2nd July 2023 and ranked teams in each of those tournaments clinch a place in the ANOC World Beach Games. The Men’s tournament will have five teams qualified through UEFA’s tournament, three from CONMEBOL, two from CAF, two from CONCACAF and another two from the joint tournament between AFC and OFC, while the women’s competition will be disputed by four teams from UEFA, two from CONMEBOL, two from CONCACAF, one from CAF and another one coming from the AFC/OFC qualification tournament.
Each of the two tournaments will also be disputed by the host country, in this case Indonesia, as well as one invited country that has not achieved qualification through the continental qualification tournaments.
Should a National Olympic Committee decline or not confirm their presence by the deadline, then their place in the tournament will be reallocated to the next highest ranked NOC on the continental tournament. And in case a continental tournament isn’t held until 2nd July 2023, then the Beach Soccer World Ranking as of 1st July 2023 will be used to determine the participating teams.
