With the popularity of football spilling into summer, beach soccer has just kicked off with the Heineken Beach Soccer League organised by the Malta Beach Soccer Association (MBSA) under the auspices of the Malta FA and in collaboration with the Kunsill Malti g─žall-Isport and Pembroke Athleta.


 


This year the competition has 15 participants comprising 11 men’s and four women’s teams. There will be over 200 players in the fray and this will make for an amazing atmosphere which is bound to attract great interest in the newly-laid stadium at the Pembroke Sports Complex.

 

This centre is gradually becoming the hub of sports activities, particularly football. It is planned to have this place as a permanent venue for top beach soccer matches.

 

With the collaboration of the authorities the bar should be raised for a venue of good standard at Pembroke both for the players and spectators.

 

On the technical side the selection process for the national team is due to start with a view to forming a national team to compete in European and International competitions.

 

The principal sponsors of the 2012 league are Heineken of Charles Grech Ltd., with Walkers /Doritos of Quintano Foods, Pago of Charles Grech Ltd. and Ice Watch of Classic Jewellers being the event sponsors. Puma of Tuttosport are the technical sponsors.
