The Beach Soccer Championships is the amateur & youth side of our event. In our inaugural year, we hosted 152 teams on 15 courts (fields). By 2010, we reached our capacity of 28 courts, doubling the number of teams hosted annually…and we have sold the event out each year since! Staying true to the reasons our company formed, we deliver a festival with soccer, music and LOTS OF FUN UNDER THE SUN! Our event represents the start of the summer soccer season in Southern California and provides a fresh break away from traditional soccer environments. We add entertainment and PRO games to create the perfect California beach party to kick the summer. All while raising and donating over $200,000 dollars to our local youth programs!
The Beach Soccer USA Cup / Beach Soccer U.S. Pro Cup 2007 was also the first year of our PRO event which takes place side by side with our amateur event. The PRO event has grown hosting U.S. based and international teams from the following nations: Mexico, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Netherlands, United Arab Emirates, Colombia, Canada, Peru, Senegal, Japan, Tahiti, Switzerland and of course, Brazil! The Beach Soccer USA Cup has been ranked among the top beach soccer club events in the world. Highlights include past champions and local pro dynasty San Diego Sockers and three-time champions CD Nacional (Portugal) who won in 2012, 2013 & 2014. In 2015, Brazil’s Vasco de Gama (Brazil) defeated FIFA Player of the Year Ramiro Amarelle’s FC Barcelona (Spain) 5-4 in the Quarterfinals before losing to eventual champion BSC Chargers (Switzerland). In 2016 our Champion was Al Ahli (UAE, Dubai) who featured Madjer (FIFA Player of the year & Portugese World Cup Champion) as the MVP. Brazilian club Botafogo took 2nd place, Lazio (Italy) took 3rd place & RWB Beach (USA National Team playing as Red, White & Blue) took 4th place. In the 2017 Final, another historic Brazilian club, Fortaleza defeated GoBeachSoccer, a team filled with Brazialian internationals & locally based US National Team players including Mike Palmerin, Nick Perrera and Chris Toth.
The Beach Soccer USA Cup rebranded in 2018 to become the Beach Soccer U.S. Pro Cup. This alignment positions us as a qualifier for a national championship going forward along with the adult Amatuer and Youth events as well. Palemerin, Toth & Perrera led GoBeachSoccer to the 2018 championship, but an attempt to defend their title was ruined when Lazio beat GoBeachSoccer for the 2019 championship. After not operating in 2020 or 2021 due to issues related to COVID 19, GoBeachSoccer returned to Oceanside and beat Florida Beach Soccer (FBS) for the 2022 tournament championship! We expect the 2023 US Pro Cup to be another quality BeSoCha experience which is what our attendees and partners have come to expect in Oceanside!
