It is a team sport played on a sand court and with bare feet. Teams fight with a total of 5 players, including the goalkeeper. There are yellow and red cards for violations of rules in beach soccer, as in classical soccer. The player who has received a yellow card leaves the game for 2 minutes and his team fights with 4 players during this time. A beach soccer match is played over 3 halves of 12 minutes each. Although there are differences from classical football, the general lines are similar.
It is preferred especially in the cities located in the coastal areas during the summer months. For beach football, which is played in a smaller area than the normal football field, a field is established on the appropriate and cleared areas of the beaches. Alanya is a very suitable region for beach football. Due to the suitability of its climate and beaches, the International Beach Football Championship was held in Alanya on 14-16 July 2000. The next championship was held on 12-14 July 2002. Beach football matches are still regularly held in Alanya. Beach football is played lovingly and having fun by competing with a group of friends. This sport, which is done together with the sea and sand, is loved by many people. The spectators of these sports competitions, which are also very enjoyable to watch, are also quite large. One of the fields where beach football is played is located on the Cleopatra beach. Another one is located on the beach of Alanya Youth Center.0 Comments
