Fortaleza from Brazil wins The USA Cup

The Beach Soccer Championships and The Beach Soccer USA Cup came to an end with another fantastic event during our 11th year anniversary. The weekend couldn't have gone any better and we owe it all to our fans.

We have a new Champion, the 2017 Title of The Beach Soccer USA Cup belongs now to Fortaleza EC from Brazil. This fantastic squad earned the victory over Brazilian powerhouse Botafogo on a hard fought 6-4 game in Oceanside. Fortaleza arrived to the Championship game following victories over LA Beach Soccer 15-3, Great Lakes BSC 13-4, a loss to Beach Soccer Zeeland from Netherlands 4-5, NorCal BSC 9-5, Gobeachsoccer 8-6 and over Botafogo 6-4 in the Final.

The Championship game of The Beach Soccer USA Cup would guarantee that we would have our 1st champion from South American & more specifically from Brazil as both squads hail from that South American nation. It was a battle of familiar faces as these players have faced each other on many occasions throughtout their careers.

  • MVP: Bernardo Botelho from Botafogo (Brazil)
