(News) Tanzania Students Beach Soccer Tournament 2013

Beach soccer students league, BSSl is the largest Tanzanian’s
student-run athletic event, to be conducted bringing together over
5000 students from different universities and colleges with different
backgrounds through the shared love of soccer. Beach Soccer Students
cup seeks to promote and celebrate the rich cultures and diversity
represented on campus in the effort to let the passion of the game
unite us all.

The Beach Soccer Students Cup is a bi-annual Tanzanian’s beach soccer
competition contested by the Universities and Colleges teams to be
regulated by rules set by FIFA , the sport's global governing body.
The tournament has taken place every year since its establishment in
1995, when it was originally supervised by Beach Soccer World Wide
(BSWW) and was called the Beach Soccer World Championship. Due to the
sport's rapid growth, FIFA took over the organization of the
competition in 2005 and rebranded it as an official FIFA tournament.
The growing global popularity of beach soccer resulted in FIFA's
decision to move the stage of the World Cup from Brazil, its native
home, to other parts of the globe. The first edition held outside
Brazil was in 2008 in Marseille, France.
