The 2nd Annual SW Futsal Invitational will be held on Sunday at the Eastern Regional Indoor Arena. As with the inaugural competition held in 2009, sporting enthusiasts and football fans will be treated to 10 hours of football. Organisers SW Touring, have teamed up with the University of the West Indies Student Guild for this year's one-of-kind sporting event. Futsal is a five-a-side game, and the format of small goal football that is recognised and supported by FIFA, the governing body for world football. Men and women teams nationwide will do battle for over $45,000 in cash and prizes."The venue will be transformed into a Futsal Village with three zones," says event promoter Geoffrey Edwards of the SW Touring Team.
"Registration is open and we are expected to attract 24 male teams to battle reigning champions Paradise FC; 16 female teams and eight youth teams each in the Under-12, Under-14 and Under-16 divisions... totalling 24 youth teams," he added.
Spectators will also be treated to ball juggling competitions, half-line shootouts and exhibition matches – whilst interacting continuously with the event's hosts. Last year, BOOM Champions 94.1fm were defeated in an exciting match by the reigning Caribbean Futsal Champions, the Trinidad and Tobago Men's Futsal team.
