Puerto Vallarta begins work in the preparation of the venue that will host Visit Puerto Vallarta Cup 2017. The world-class sports event will feature selected players from France and Colombia and will promote Puerto Vallarta in more than 250 million homes in America, Europe, Asia and North Africa.
The event, which is part of the Beach Soccer Worldwide Tour, will be hosted in the destination from October 20 to 22 at the IPEJAL grounds, in front of the sports unit “Agustín Flores Contreras”. Currently work is being done to build a cajete to expand the arena, which currently is suitable for beach volleyball but requires expansion for beach soccer.
Once technical specifications are met, the rest of the stage, including the stands of the stadium, will begin next week. The event will be the first Beach Soccer tournament to be joined by the Mexican Football Federation, sponsored by the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Trust and sponsored by FIFA.
The United States, France and Colombia, along with host Mexico, will be the four teams that will compete in the 2017 Puerto Vallarta Cup, according to Beach Soccer Worldwide. The former, an old rival of the Aztecs, in addition the former champions of the world of France and the emerging talent of Colombia, assure that it will be a first class event.
