Football Queensland (FQ) is excited to announce it will stage an inaugural Beach Soccer Exhibition Event at Coolangatta Beach in January 2021.
“There’s no better place to reintroduce beach soccer to the Australian sporting landscape than on the Gold Coast,” FQ President Ben Richardson said.
“FQ’s vision is to develop football into an ‘anytime, anywhere’ sport that provides enjoyable, high-quality experiences for all Queenslanders.
“We’re continually making progress towards achieving that strategic objective and fully believe in beach soccer as an opportunity to drive year-round accessibility, breaking down the traditional seasonality of our sport.
“It’s perfect for families, perfect for young people and ideally aligned to the Queensland way of life.”
The Beach Soccer Exhibition Event is set to take place on the weekend of January 16-17, with pop-up stalls, food vendors and music creating a vibrant carnival atmosphere.
Casual and serious players can nominate teams in open-age men’s and women’s social or competitive tournaments, or in the mixed social division.
“We’re delighted to partner with Major Events Gold Coast in launching this fresh product,” FQ CEO Robert Cavallucci said.
“There’s going to be plenty of energy, entertainment and fun interactions for players and spectators in a beautiful location in Coolangatta.”
FQ is inviting Queenslanders to gather club team-mates, friends or family members in groups of 5-12 for the very first Beach Soccer Exhibition Event.
You may enter as your own team or as a team representing a Queensland club. The fee is $320 per team, which includes insurance coverage for all participants.
Fill out the team nomination form now to express your interest and FQ will be in touch to confirm places for the January 2021 event.
