The North American Sand Soccer Championships' U.S. OPEN was created in 2001 to attract top domestic and international teams as the sport grew in popularity and expanded across the globe.  Initially titled the "U.S. National Finals," the U.S. OPEN was the first event of its kind in the United States to offer a significant cash purse.

Since 2001, participants representing over twenty countries have made their way to Virginia Beach to participate in the tournament.  In 2017, twelve teams competed for the $25,000 purse in three days of intense action.  Group drawings were held live on by Miss Virginia 2016, Michaela Sigmon.
