The premier USA and international amateur and pro/am beach/sand soccer festival on the planet.
NASSC (North American Sand Soccer Championship) features the men’s pro/am U.S. OPEN cash division involving top beach soccer athletes from around the country and the world. NASSC is conducted by the Hampton Roads Soccer Council as a charity fundraiser for athletic facilities in the Region.
This “World Cup” equivalent of international amateur beach soccer events is hard to miss and attracts teams from all over, including nearly 20 states and as far away as Africa, Portugal, Germany, Brazil, Norway’s rocky seacoasts, the Caribbean, and the wilds of Canada’s Northwest Territories. The Championships are staged over 22 full City blocks of prime oceanfront real estate, on over mile and a half of white sand – against a backdrop of diving gulls, banners waving in stiff ocean breezes, thousands of Boardwalk bedazzled spectators, live music and great food. Meanwhile, surf’s up just a few steps from the soccer action and, when day is done, most participants and fans head out to the area’s unbelievable lineup of regional entertainment.
The Hampton Roads Soccer Council (HRSC) is your host for the tournament weekend and plan year-round to ensure a guaranteed sand-blast. HRSC consists of the Virginia Rush, the Southeastern Virginia Women’s Soccer Association, the Over Thirty Men’s League (OTSL), and Beach FC travel soccer organizations, HRSC has staged the Championships since 1994 to generate revenues for its premier 75-acre Soccer Complex. Over 100 national and regional sponsors and advertisers graciously support the festival. New corporate teammates are always welcomed and may view our sponsors page or contact us for more information.
