Sony Pictures Sports Network brings 2019 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup for the ardent community of football fans across India




The FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup is an international beach soccer competition contested by the men's national teams of the member associations of FIFA, the sport's global governing body. With its increasing popularity and successful launch of its tournaments in India, Sony Pictures Sports Network brings its latest edition of 2019 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup for the ardent community of football fans across India starting from 22nd November 2019.



Beach soccer being a popular sport around the world, especially in South American countries like Brazil, Argentina and many more, has started to gain ground in India as well, with several beach soccer tournaments taking place in different parts of the country from Goa to Kolkata. With its fresh appeal and interesting format, it aims to attract many fringe viewers apart from the hardcore football fans. 



As teams across the globe are set to lock horns and increase the temperatures on the hot beaches of Paraguay, let us have a look at the potential favorites and the surprise packages featuring in this edition of 2019 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup airing live and exclusive on Sony Pictures Sports Network in India for the avid community of football enthusiasts.


·       The Contenders:

With 16 teams qualified for the final tournament from six continental competitions, Brazil is leading with the highest score followed by 15 other participating teams. There will be expectations from two-time champions Russia and 2015 champions Portugal to mount a serious challenge to lift the trophy as they are the only squads to have eliminated Brazil out of the World Cup. Portugal and Brazil the only teams to have won the world title before and after FIFA assumed the government of beach soccer worldwide. On the other hand, Tahiti, who finished as runners-up at the past two editions, will be hoping to go one step further in the sand of Asuncion.



·       The Dark Horses:

For the sole purpose of making this tournament fair for all the football developing countries from across the world, the teams were allocated into four pots based on their previous performances at recent World Cups and their respective qualification tournaments.

Hosts Paraguay are considered to be the second-strongest team from South America, and the added boost of having home support will go a long way for the renowned beach soccer powerhouse. Other teams with pedigree in beach soccer include Italy, Asian champions Japan, African champions Senegal and perennial knockout stage-qualifiers Switzerland. Out of the 16 teams, Belarus are the only team to be making their debut at the Beach Soccer World Cup in Paraguay in this edition.



·       Goals Ahead:

The Beach Soccer tournament was established in 1995 in Brazil and due to the sport's rapid growth, FIFA took an interest and re-branded it as an official FIFA tournament. The growing global popularity of beach soccer resulted in FIFA's decision to move the stage of the World Cup from its native home in Brazil to other parts of the globe to capitalize on and continue to grow global interest. The year 2019 will see the 10th edition of Beach Soccer World Cup under the FIFA banner take place at the headquarters of the Paraguayan Olympic Committee in Paraguay from 21st November 2019 and will be aired in India only on Sony Pictures Sports Network.
