A sport competition in a dream setting
Tahiti will be the first Pacific island country and the French Territory to host an event of FIFA. For this occasion, the entire island proudly carries the colors of Beach Soccer along with the official song “Tu’e Popo” interpreted by local artist Sabrina.
The official video for the song launched recently highlights the most symbolic places of the capital – Papeete, some beautiful beaches of Polynesia and images of previous Beach Soccer World Cup. More than 200 people from the islands of Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, Rapa and Takaroa will take part in the filming, demonstrating French Polynesian unity in this competition.
The international airport of Tahiti-Faa’a will welcome and promote the event by posting different visual and welcome messages addressed to travelers and participants of this World Cup in the departure and arrivals areas.
This event promises spectacular media effects, as well as a deep public interest of the Polynesians for this international event. Indeed, since the opening of ticket sales to the public on August 2, the game tickets for third place game and the finals on September 28 as well as the semi-finals have all been sold out. Same for the 6th day of the round-robin matches, and the requests for seats continue to stream in. The quarterfinals are the other most popular meets. Tickets expect to be sold out soon!
