The Russian Football Union will nominate Moscow to host the 2021 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup, its Deputy President Sergei Anokhin told Tass.

The Beach Soccer World Cup has been held since 2005 with Brazil, France, the United Arab Emirates, Italy, Tahiti and Portugal hosting the previous tournaments.

Russia announced its plans to submit its bid for hosting the beach soccer event in the fall of 2016.

“We will be striving for hosting the 2021 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup in Moscow,” Anokhin said.
