History was made on June 22nd, 2018 as 16 teams representing El Salvador, Italy, Portugal, Spain, the UK and the United States assembled on the golden beaches of Portugal to define a new beginning for the sport of beach soccer and international youth competition. In that moment, the first inaugural Madjer Youth Beach Soccer Cup was formed and forever changed the lives of everyone.

The second edition of the Madjer Cup was held in June of 2019 and was a complete success. It featured more teams, including one from Poland, in addition to the same teams and countries that were represented in the historic first edition.

Although we entered 2020 with tremendous momentum and anticipation for an even more exciting third edition, it was with great sadness that we had to unfortunately postpone the event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a difficult decision at the time, but one that had to be made for the safety of all the participants and because of various unpredictable restrictions on international travel. The COVID-19 pandemic did not only effect the Madjer Cup, but also halted most, if not all, beach soccer events around the globe.

We are cautiously optimistic as we look forward to renewing the love and passion for the sport in 2021, as we begin the initial planning phases of the third edition, which holds the promise of delivering even more excitement, more teams, and more fun. Come be a part of this magical and multi-cultural event, as the most talented youth beach soccer teams from around the world compete for the gold!

This incredible competition is the perfect venue to unite and showcase the best youth players from around the globe, who represent the future professional and national team players of this exciting sport. This is the absolute highest level of competitive youth beach soccer worldwide and will be hosted at one of the premiere sports beaches in the world, located in Figueira da Foz, Portugal.

The Madjer Cup is the first and only youth beach soccer competition sanctioned and approved by Beach Soccer Worldwide, the FIFA designated organizing body for the sport of beach soccer.


This 4-day event will be held during the third weekend of June 2021 and begins with a team reception on Thursday afternoon, June 17th. Competitive matches will commence on June 18th and 19th, followed by the semi-final and final matches on Sunday, June 20th.
