Organisers of COPA Lagos will kick start its annual global beach soccer event on 11 December, 2016. This year’s event promises to be the most prominent event where guests will experience a unique and exclusive beach lifestyle including, a fashion show and celebrity entertainment.
Since 2011 when the event started, it has moved from being the first ever international beach soccer event in Nigeria and Sub-Saharan Africa to being one of the most attended sporting events in the region.

In addition, the organisers have teamed up with key fashion designers to unveil the 2016 Copa Lagos Fashion Show. The show will go beyond simply showcasing beach friendly designs to actively proposing a Copa lifestyle. The Copa lifestyle, personified by carefully curated pieces from clothing to accessories, will be presented in a fun, upbeat atmosphere with all the hallmarks of an easygoing affair. From make-up to music, the team will curate looks from known designers as well as upcoming talents.
