KICKING OFF To beach soccer fans everywhere, It is my pleasure to be able to write to you in this, the very first edition of BAREFOOT, a venture we are confident will add another dimension to our attempts to spread the word about our wonderful sport. The idea of a magazine for followers of beach soccer is something we have been thinking about for a number of months now and I am truly proud that we have reached a position where we have been able to launch it fully. Released quarterly, the bulletin will feature the latest beach soccer news from across the globe as well as exclusive interviews, top-quality images and hints and tips for those who play, or wish to start playing. We’re also going to ask you, the readers, to do some of the work for us by contributing to our Fan Pics section, and becoming the interviewers to our stars on the sand. After all, you are the lifeblood of beach soccer and we’ll be keeping an eye on the #BeachSoccer hashtag on Instagram for the best and most exciting pictures, which will then be used in our magazine. We hope you enjoy the first edition of BAREFOOT but, obviously, if you have any suggestions or queries then feel free to get in touch with us via www.beachsoccer. com or social media. Elsewhere at Beach Soccer Worldwide, we have another busy few months ahead following the Samsung Intercontinental Cup in Dubai with the Copa Libertadores and the Copa America to come in Brazil as well as CAF qualifiers for the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup to be held in Lagos in December. AFC, CONCACAF and CONMEBOL qualifiers are also on the horizon as we build towards the World Cup in the Bahamas. Remember to take a look at our calendar in the back of this magazine to see what’s going on globally in our sport. Best wishes and enjoy your beach soccer, wherever you may be…
