Kebbi BSC are winners of Beach Soccer League Super 4

Kebbi Beach Soccer Club (BSC), have emerged winners of this year’s Nigeria Beach Soccer League Super 4 National Finals which ended yesterday in Kaduna after three days of competition.

In the finals at the Murtala Muhammed Square, Kebbi Beach Soccer Club underscored their dominance of the domestic game by winning their third title of the three-year-old event.

Cup holders as well as winners of the inaugural finals in 2021, they lost 2-3 after penalties to Kada Stars of Kaduna but that didn’t stop them from picking their third title and pocketing the N600,000 winners’ prize.

Their six points in the finals lifted them above Anambra Warriors, who finished in second place and went home with N400,000, and third-placed Kebbi United, who pocketed N300,000. Kada Stars finished fourth and earned N200,000.

Two-time participants at the Beach Soccer Worldwide Winners Cup, Kebbi BSC also produced the tournament’s MVP in Hassan Abdullahi. Kebbi United’s Sadiq Umar emerged highest goalscorer with 17 goals, with the club’s Umar Aliyu selected the Rising Star of the competition and Festus Bashorun of Anambra Warriors named the best goalkeeper. Kada Stars won the Fair Play trophy.

The attention of the beach soccer community now shifts to the Supersand Eagles’ preparations for the 2024 Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Mauritania, with the first leg in Nouakchott on 20th July and the return leg in Nigeria a week later.
