The World Futsal Championships are the perennial showcase of the world’s best youth and adult
futsal squads. Professional Coaches and scouts will be in attendance for the tournament each year.
DATES: August 6th – 10th, 2014
LOCATION: ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at the Walt Disney World Resort
Futsal is very exciting form of soccer that doesn’t get the respect it deserves in the United States. Although to be fair, regular soccer barely gets any respect so futsal is essentially fighting a losing battle. This tournament will have futsal teams from clubs around the world. For those who are unfamiliar with the sport, many professional soccer clubs have their own futsal teams as well so the futsal teams of legendary clubs like FC Barcelona will be in attendance. This would be exciting to watch in person. Hopefully a few games will be broadcast during off-peak hours on major television sports networks.
