MINSK, 4 April (BelTA) – The beach soccer tournament will embellish the 2nd European Games Minsk 2019, BelTA learned from Chairman of the Coordination Commission of the 2nd European Games Spyros Capralos on 4 April.

Spyros Capralos said: “Beach soccer is hugely popular with viewers. Belarus’ good location will encourage fans from other countries to come here. I think the beach soccer tournament will embellish the multisport forum.”

George Katulin, CEO of the Minsk European Games Organizing Committee (MEGOC), noted that a lot had already been done in anticipation of the games. “It is now necessary to step up preparations at the venue where beach soccer competitions will take place and provide participants of the competitions with everything they need,” he added.

The beach soccer tournament of the 2nd European Games will be held at the Olimpiysky Stadium, with the group stage games scheduled for 25-27 June. On 28 June the top two teams from each group will play semifinal games. Gold and bronze medal games are slated for 29 June. Teams that are out of the semifinal stage will compete in a repechage tournament for the 5-8th places.
