In 2006 John Hawkins, in conjunction with T-Mobile and Birmingham City Council, created one of the largest ever fan parks for the 2006 World Cup.

Alongside the viewing area which featured a stage, bars and a HUGE screen, we built an international sized beach soccer stadium in which we hosted a month long beach sports extravaganza to coincide with the nations favourite sports event.

The event kicked off with live music, dancers and a Legends Beach Soccer Tournament featuring former football players from Birmingham, West Brom and Aston Villa.

This was followed by an International Beach Soccer Event featuring the current World Champions France, Portugal, Holland and of course England.

The one and only Eric Cantona was the guest of honour as the Manager of the French Team, he had only just retired from playing, alongside his brother Joel who promotes the sport in France.

Seating 1500 the temporary beach soccer pitch was built on a concrete floor in front of the Millenium Point utilising approximately 900 tonnes of sand. It remained there for 6 weeks and was also used for beach soccer coaching for inner city school kids.

The overall event was a huge success attracting thousands of sports fans as well as teenage girls to the gigs in the evening featuring the likes of Mc Fly.

Beach events and England beach soccer are proud of our long history of working with Birmingham City Council. We delivered our first major beach event there in 2006 when we stage a full FIFA beach soccer event that included Eric Cantona’s France, Holland and the then worlds best team Portugal.

Since then we have worked with all kinds of brands including Disney XD, Carlsberg and Nuts TV delivering outstanding international and community events.
