Portugal national beach soccer team represents Portugal in international beach soccer competitions, and is controlled by the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF), the governing body for Portuguese football. The team has participated in 15 of the 18 editions of the Beach Soccer World Cup (organised by FIFA since 2005), and its best results are two victories in 2001 (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) and 2015 (Espinho, Portugal). Alongside Brazil, Portugal is the only team to have won the world title before and after FIFA assumed the government of beach soccer worldwide.
