Likewise, Eva Vizcaíno encouraged “all those interested to be encouraged to participate in an event that will be unique. And to the families who want to come and see it since, in addition to the beach soccer matches, we will have several activities that will be carried out by the Red Youth Cross on Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. ”.
The categories that may participate range from Pre-benjamín to Juvenil. Registration for this championship can be done online until July 11 at the email: email@example.com.
