In virtually all countries in the world, soccer is the most popular sport that people play. This is why there are literally hundreds of soccer teams in each country. Soccer has evolved over time but one of the most basic parts of the game has not changed much.
Basically footvolley is just beach volleyball with players using their feet instead of a ball. While this may seem like a relatively simple sport to adapt to various sporting codes, the truth is it is an incredibly complicated sport. The rules for both Association football and beach volleyball are the same. However, the way in which the rules are adapted and altered from country to country can make each sport unique. For example, while rules on sand are generally the same as those for Association football, rules on grass vary greatly between countries.
As a result of the uniqueness of Association football and beach volleyball, each sport has its own unique set of equipment requirements. Since the two sports share some common equipment, adapting equipment for each can be fairly easy. Many countries have their own standards when it comes to equipment for beach volleyball and Association football. These standards help to keep the sport uniform and consistent between teams and even between clubs within a team.
In the summertime, Footvolley Association is the most commonly used footwear by both men and women in association football and beach volleyball alike. In addition to Footvolley, other brands of shoes that are commonly used include Adidas, Nike and Puma. Adidas and Nike have traditionally produced excellent footwear for both men and women and this trend continues with their new line of sandals for both sexes.
As with every sport there is an ongoing evolution of equipment. This can be seen with the first footvolley tour in Japan in 1998. At the time, the tour was quite controversial as the rules were being changed regularly. However, the first ever footvolley tournament was held in 2001 in Japan and went largely unnoticed by fans across Europe and America. As demand for the shoes increased so did the number of manufacturers producing them and the first footvolley tour players were then chosen to represent their teams.
The first ever World Cup Foot Volleyball competition was held in Brazil in 2004 and took place at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro. Despite the high standards set by the Footvolley Association, the World Cup was eventually won by Spain, beating the USA in their first ever tournament. This marked the beginning of what would become a long history between the two nations; the rivalry between them and Brazil for world dominance in the sport.
With the popularity of the sport increasing, many other countries such as South Africa, Russia, Australia and Canada joined the international footvolley association and made themselves known to the rest of the world. The popularity of the beach footvolley became huge with fans all over Europe and America. The game became so popular that players from different teams were offered contracts by the footvolley association in order to join and play. This resulted in a huge rise in players joining the association and the game’s standards also began to rise. The game has now become so famous that the official association has released its own football kit and is actively looking to promote the sport further. The official site offers all types of information about the game and the beach volleyball team, the awards and trophies it won during the World Cup tournaments and the team’s current players and future stars.
The first foot volley competition was held in 2004 at the Copacabana beach in Rio. Despite the heavy rains, more than 20,000 people turned out for the competition which was won by Spain. The next competition in the line was held in Las Vegas, Nevada during the Summer Olympics and was won by Brazil. Since then the game has become extremely popular all over Europe, America, Asia and Australia. There are now official international footvolley associations in every country that is playing in a major tournament and has a dedicated following of fans.
