The 2013 Euro Beach Soccer League (EBSL) is an annual European competition in beach soccer. The competitions allows national teams to compete in beach soccer in a league format over the summer months. Each season ends with a Superfinal, deciding the competition winner.

Contents

This season, there are twelve teams each participating in two divisions in each Stage (there are a record number of five Stages this year) that will face each other in a round-robin system. Division A consists of the 12 top teams in Europe based on the BSWW European Ranking. Division B consists of 12 of the lower ranked teams and new entries to the competition. Each division has its own regulations and competition format.

Each team competes in two preliminary events to see their points obtained accumulated into an overall ranking that will determine the teams that qualify for the Superfinal. Due to the newly expanded format this season, the top eight teams of Division A (including the individual Stage winners and the host team Spain) will play in the Superfinal in Torredembarra, Spain from 8–11 August. The top seven teams of Division B (including the individual Stage winners) plus the worst team in Division A will play in the Promotional Final to try to earn promotion to Division A for the 2014 season.

Once again this season, the Power Horse energy drink company is the main sponsor of the EBSL. The logo has been slightly modified to show this.
