As Brazilian, I am particularly pleased to work with beach soccer, and I look forward to helping the sport grow its digital revenues.”
During a 2020 in which the events and competitions have been heavily impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, Beach Soccer Worldwide have been utilising their digital channels to keep the beach soccer community engaged and active, and this approach will continue in this 2021, where the different tournaments will be complemented by an intense digital strategy to provide fans with an even more powerful experience. Together with big events such as the FIFA Beach Soccer world Cup and its qualifiers, the Intercontinental Cup in Dubai or the Mundialito de Clubes in Moscow, amongst others, the beach soccer digital content will boost the interaction with the beach soccer followers and professionals all around the world, with Horizm acting as a key player in this ecosystem.
