The Kingdom’s first regional beach soccer tournament lands on Amwaj Islands this month as 16 teams take to the sand to compete under the sun and on irregular terrain. This month, 16 national teams from all over the region will be coming to the Kingdom to take part in the Bahrain Beach Soccer Tournament (BBST) 2012. Organised by Provision Events, the game will be a GCC level tournament in conjunction with Bahrain Football Association and aims to promote a ‘beautiful game, beautiful Bahrain’. Except to see some high-speed kicks, diving goal saves and speedy shoeless footwork as the five-player teams tackle the sand. Each game will be made up of three periods of 12 minutes, each with a three-minute break in between. The high-profile event will be enjoyable for people of all ages, offering more than just the matches themselves. Attendees can enjoy jet skiing, the PlayStation tent, face painting, a guitar band, martial art performances, an open market bazaar and a celebrity penalty kick shoot-out. Refreshments and snacks can be purchased at the café or nearby coffee shops. There will also be BBST merchandise sold throughout the tournament, so you can pick up your novelty gear to show your team some support. In addition to the regular crowd stands, there will also be a special VIP area for those wanting a better view. Donations will be accepted and contributed to the Bahrain Cancer Society.
