BFA begins search for island’s best

The Bermuda Football Association will host a Beach Football Tournament on Sunday, August 28 at Horseshoe Bay with the ultimate aim to develop it into a thriving summer league as well as a national programme to compete in future CFA and Concacaf tournaments.

The tournament will kick off at 11am with group stage matches. All teams will then progress into either a championship or consolation bracket.

The tournament will be limited to eight teams on a first come, first served basis. The games will be five-a-side and will consist of fifteen minute halves. Entry for the tournament will be $100 per team and each team will be provided shirts for the tournament.

Registration can be completed by filling out the registration form and paying the entry fee. Forms can be collected at the Clyde Best Centre of Excellence building in Prospect or online at bermudafootball.com.

Registration is open to all local teams and players must be 16 years of age or older.

The beach form of the sport continues to grow worldwide, especially throughout the Caribbean.

The BFA will use this tournament to gauge the level of interest in the sport in Bermuda.

“Our island home is a perfect setting for the short-sided game and the fast paced nature of the game will hopefully entice both players and spectators to attend the event,” the BFA said.

“The BFA is extremely pleased to be partnering with the successful Live Free movement for this tournament. All proceeds of the tournament will be donated to the Live Free Scholarship Fund in memory of Jason Smith.”
