It’s not reasonable, but we’re going to spoil you anyway: a rain of goals will fall on the Le Havre beach (Seine-Maritime)Saturday July 30, 2022. Given what is being prepared, there is as much chance of seeing a 0-0 as a sliding tackle.

Acrobatic covers galore

Indeed, a veteran six-on-six sand football tournament will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. No studs, no contact, just technique. In this discipline, it is not uncommon for players to perform acrobatic rounds in an attempt to score.

This is a first in France. Here, we play beach soccer, five against five. It is in Brazil that they play football on sand. And frankly, in all the little friendly matches we play, the players are thrilled. I sense excitement. It is a spectacular sport.

The teams (Frileuse, Montivilliers, Union des Falaises, Algerian Selection, HAC Multi-soccer, SC Octeville) will face each other in two 30-minute halves and the match will always end in a winner (overtime if tied).

Sun, a ball, sand and beautiful gestures. The beach on Havre will look like Copacabana.
