Oceanside, CA – Frontwave Credit Union announced today that it will become the official Financial Sponsor of the 2022 Beach Soccer Championships, one of the largest beach soccer tournaments in the United States.
After being canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Beach Soccer Championships returns to Oceanside the first weekend in June (June 3 – 5). The annual festival draws over 10,000 participants and 50,000 attendees to the local beaches, and includes a Professional division attracting some of the best beach soccer players from around the world, including Mexico, Spain, Italy, United Arab Emirates and Brazil.
Among various activations, the partnership includes naming rights for the Frontwave BeSoCha Cantina, a recent addition to the Beach Soccer Championships that enables attendees to enjoy food, beverages and entertainment while taking in all the beach soccer action.
“At Frontwave, we ensure that we reflect our community and connect with our Members. Our Members work hard and play hard, just like the players in the Beach Soccer Championships. That’s what makes this partnership such a great fit for us,” said Todd Kern, Chief Experience Officer at Frontwave Credit Union. “We’re excited to be part of the return of this fun festival that shines a light on our fantastic community here in Oceanside.”
