Alba Adriatica will host the European Tour Ebra Series, the European stage of the beach rugby championship next summer. The event, 4 and 5 July, will be curated by Asd Beach Sport which is setting up a highly prestigious poster. The news was made official by Sandro Zivelli who takes care of beach rugby in Beach Sport after a meeting before Christmas in Milan with the general secretary of the EBRA (European Beach Rugby Association) Giancarlo Stocco. So at the Beach Stadiun Europa Acciai next July there could be a maximum of 18 beach rugby teams, 12 in the men’s and 6 women’s, coming from many European countries, transforming the silver beach into an increasingly international location. Taking a look at the calendar, the small Abruzzo coast will be alongside world-class tourist resorts such as Marseille, Barcelona, ​​Porto – Portugal, then Lignano Sabbiadoro which will host the final stage. To which this season have been added Balaton Lake (Hungary) and Alba Adriatica. Over the years the strongest teams in the world have challenged each other on the beaches of Europe and, in this context, Italy has always distinguished itself very well. The show, therefore, has always been guaranteed, but in recent years the challenges have become increasingly exciting and high-level. At the Beach Stadium Europa Acciai, at the Al Faro plant, we will have the following teams on 4th and 5th July: the reigning champions of Ovale Beach Marseille, Les Minots – France, Padova Beach – Italy, Crazy Crabs – Italy, Yakha XIII – France, SA Wild Dogs – South Africa. To these formations will be added in the coming months that will complete the scoreboard with the groups. Another international blow for the prestige of Alba Adriatica, increasingly devoted to top-level sporting events.
