TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The second edition of the Persian Beach Soccer Cup will be held in Bushehr, southern Iran, from Jan. 27 to 29.
The competition will bring three foreign teams namely, Spain, Ukraine and the Azerbaijan Republic along with Iran together.
In the first edition, which was held with participation of Poland, Italy and Ukraine, Team Melli won the title.
