The 2001 Beach Soccer World Championship was the seventh edition of the Beach Soccer World Championships, the most prestigious competition in international beach soccer contested by men's national teams. It was organized by the Brazilian sports agency Koch Tavares in cooperation with and under the supervision of Beach Soccer Worldwide (BSWW), the sports governing body. The championships were ultimately under the control of FIFA in 2005, which subsequently rebranded the competition as the better-known FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup.

For the first time since its establishment in 1995, the tournament took place outside of the sport's native home of Rio de Janeiro and instead was hosted at the resort of Costa do Sauipe, in the state of Bahia, approximately 70km north of the major city of Salvador.[1]

It was also the first time that hosts and six-time defending champions Brazil did not win the championships, finishing in fourth, as Portugal beat France in the final to claim their first title.

Organisation[edit]

Having increased the number of participating teams in 1999, these championships continued to consist of twelve nations who were split into four groups of three playing in a round robin format. The top two from each group advanced to the quarter finals from which point on the championship was played as a knock-out tournament until a winner was crowned with an additional match to determine third place.

The draw for the allocation of the twelve nations into the four groups was conducted on January 14 in Villa-Lobos State Park in São Paulo.[1]

A representative of FIFA, Alfredo Asfura, attended the finals to assess the sport's premier event to understand the suitability of potentially incorporating beach soccer into the FIFA family.[2] His post-competition analysis of the sport was that beach soccer was full of "prosperity" and that the "experience, professionalism and seriousness of the organization [of the event] will be fundamental for FIFA" in deciding where or not to adopt the sport in the future.[3] FIFA ultimately took over as governing body of beach soccer in late 2004.[4]

Rede Globo were responsible for broadcasting the games in Brazil, which caused controversy in Portuguese media when the network decided to show the third place play off involving the Brazilian national team but subsequently not show the final.[5]

Teams[edit]

Asia, Africa and Oceania were unrepresented.
