Beach Soccer (Beasal) or Beach football is a variant of the sport of association football. The game itself is played on beaches, and emphasises skill, agility and goals. Whilst football has been played informally on the beach for years, the introduction of beach soccer was an attempt to codify rules for the game.
This was done in 1992 by the founders of Beach Soccer Worldwide, a company set to develop beach soccer and responsible for the majority of its tournaments to this day.
The irregularity of the soft-sand playing surface leads to a style of play where players must improvise. The compact pitch (measuring 28x37 metres) allows players to score from anywhere.
This leads to high scoring games, with an average of sixty attempts at goal in a single game, with an average scoring rate of one goal every 3-4 minutes — eleven goals in total per Game.
