The FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup is a global beach soccer tournament competed by the nationwide squads of the member federations of FIFA, the sport’s entire operating system.
The competition paved the way for the Beach Soccer World Championships founded in 1995 which has been held every year for many decades under the maintenance of Beach Soccer Worldwide (BSWW) and its forebears. FIFA teamed up with Beach Soccer Worldwide in 2005 to take charge of the organization of the tournament, rebranding it which is now officially called the FIFA tournament.
The FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup 2023 will mark as the twelfth edition of the FIFA Beach Soccer championship which will be completed by men’s nationwide teams of the member association of FIFA. Altogether, this will be recorded as the twenty-second edition of the beach soccer world cup since the formation of the Beach Soccer World Championships which took place from 1995-2004 but we’re not regulated by FIFA. This will witness the seventh competition to take place bi-yearly; the World Cup was held perennially until 2009.
