Swiss Chargers of Switzerland overcame FC Barcelona 2-0 to retain the championship title at the sixth annual Bago Sports Beach Soccer Championship at the Courland Heritage Park, Courland which ended on Sunday.

Chargers were up against the powerful Spanish club who included several world class players including Tahiti's Llorenc Gomez, the top scorer at the 2013 World Beach Soccer Cup (Tahiti) and 2013 Euro Beach Soccer League. He was voted the MVP at the Euro Beach Soccer League (2012).

However, Chargers' goalkeeper, Tobagonian Victor Thomas was eventually named the Best Goalkeeper of the tournament. In the final, he out-shone his rivals at Turtle Beach, denying the shooting power of Barcelona with some spectacular and crucial saves.
