The 6th Edition of the TEAMSPORT Goalkeeper Battle, in collaboration with Birzebbuga Local Council, will be held on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th June 2016 at Pretty Bay in Birzebbuga. This will be the first time the goalkeeper battle is being held on a beach soccer pitch.
For the third consecutive year, the profit from sponsors and gates will go direct to ZEM ZEM Foundation which is a voluntary organization which provides monetary assistance to patients suffering from diseases such as leukaemia.
There will be 8 categories and up to 32 goalkeepers in each category can participate. The thirty-two goalkeepers will be grouped in fours and two from each group will go through to the second round which will lead to the finals.
All categories are as follows: Under-9, Under-11, Under-13, Under-15, Under-17, Under-19, Seniors and Girls.
Each game has a duration of 4 minutes and all games will be controlled by MFA referees.
