The FBA is delighted to partner with Beach Soccer World Wide, the major entity behind the creation and growth of Beach Soccer. The Barcelona-based organization is responsible for the organization of the major international beach soccer events, including the BSWW Euro Beach League, the BSWW Euro Beach Cup, the Mundialito and most of the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup qualifiers, always in cooperation with the different confederations.

Part of the FIFA family since 2005, at that point the Beach Soccer World Championships became the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup, with BSWW’s staff helping implement and manage the competition while still managing most of the qualification competitions in collaboration with the confederations.
This partnership comes at a time when BSWW is looking to expand its footprint and impact around the world, focusing on providing more access to the sport, more professionalization, as well as a bigger focus on their women’s beach soccer and development programs. It will provide FBA Candidates who are pursuing their Professional Master in Football Business with exciting opportunities to put their knowledge and innovative ideas into practice and support BSWW in different departments and across their various business strategies.
In addition to its role as event organizer, BSWW also focuses, through its Beach Soccer Foundation, on making a difference in areas such as gender equality, community support, sustainability, skin cancer awareness, and youth development.
