The 2006 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup was the second edition of the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup, governed by FIFA. Previous editions before 2005 were not governed by FIFA and were held under the title Beach Soccer World Championships. Overall this was the twelfth edition of the World Cup since its establishment in 1995. It took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 2–12 November 2006. The winners of the tournament were hosts Brazil, who won their first FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup title and their tenth title overall.

Major changes to format[edit]

After the 2005 World Cup, beach soccer continued to grow and spread worldwide at a fast rate. Therefore FIFA established the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup qualifiers, to try to allow more nations to play in the World Cup, as well as getting more national teams involved in the sport. FIFA also increased the number of participating teams in the World Cup from 12 to a record-high 16 teams. This also meant that nations would no longer be invited to play in the World Cup but would have to qualify.

With the establishment of the qualifying rounds, FIFA decided to standardise each World Cup, meaning that from this World Cup onwards, each confederation would have the same number of teams participating in each World Cup and that the 16 teams would be split up into four groups of four teams, with the top two teams moving on to the quarter finals.

Qualifying rounds[edit]

African zone[edit]

African nations were allocated 2 berths at the World Cup. The championship took place between September 28 and September 30, 2006. Cameroon and Nigeria were the two finalists, meaning they both qualified for the World Cup. Cameroon defeated Nigeria in the final to win the title.

Asian zone[edit]

Asian nations were allocated 3 berths at the World Cup. The championship took place between May 22 and May 26, 2006. Bahrain and Japan were the two finalists, meaning they both qualified for the World Cup. Bahrain defeated Japan in the final to win the title. Iran and China were knocked out in the semi finals and played each other in the third place play off. Iran beat China to claim the third berth at the World Cup.

European zone[edit]

European nations were allocated 5 berths at the World Cup. Instead of having a specific tournament for World Cup qualification, qualification was achieved through the 2006 Euro Beach Soccer League which took place earlier in the year. The nations who made it to the second stage of the Superfinal qualified to the World Cup being Spain, Portugal, Poland and Italy. To decide who would claim the fifth berth, the defeated nations in the competition came back to play in a straight knockout tournament, with the winner progressing to the World Cup. The nation which won the tournament was France who beat Switzerland in the final.

North, Central American and Caribbean zone[edit]

North, Central American and Caribbean nations were allocated 2 berths at the World Cup. The championship took place between September 13 and September 17, 2006. The United States and Canada were the two finalists, meaning they both qualified for the World Cup. The United States defeated Canada in the final to win the title.

Oceanian zone[edit]

Oceanian nations were allocated 1 berth at the World Cup. The championship took place between August 31 and September 3, 2006. The Solomon Islands and Vanuatu were the two finalists. The Solomon Islands defeated Vanuatu in the final to win the title and qualify for the World Cup.

South American zone[edit]

South American nations were allocated 3 berths at the World Cup. The championship took place between March 5 and March 12, 2006. Brazil and Uruguay were the two finalists, meaning they both qualified for the World Cup. Brazil defeated Uruguay in the final to win the title. Argentina and Venezuela were knocked out in the semi finals and played each other in the third place play off. Argentina beat Venezuela to claim the third berth at the World Cup.

Teams[edit]

These are the teams that qualified for the World Cup:

Group stage[edit]

The 16 teams present at the finals in Brazil were split into 4 groups of 4 teams. Each team played the other 3 teams in its group in a round-robin format, with the top two teams advancing to the quarter finals. The quarter finals, semi finals and the final itself was played in the form of a knockout tournament.

All matches are listed as local time in Rio de Janeiro, (UTC-3)

Group A[edit]

Team Pld W W+ L GF GA GD Pts
 Brazil 3 3 0 0 29 10 19 9
 Japan 3 1 0 2 15 22 -7 3
 Poland 3 1 0 2 12 18 -6 3
 United States 3 1 0 2 14 20 -6 3
  • Note: Japan, Poland and the USA were involved in a three-way tie. Therefore their match results against Brazil were ignored. Each team won one game against another side, so this couldn't break the tie. The next criteria is goal difference. Japan had the best goal difference from its two matches against Poland and USA, and thus were ranked the top of the tie-breaker, taking the group runners-up position.
