The curtain comes down on the National Futsal League—the five-a-side version of football, from 7 p.m. this evening with the final set of matches taking place at the Chaguanas Indoor Facility.

Over the past several weeks, the league has been ongoing with a series of exciting encounters which has led to the final. The league, which is sponsored by Petrotrin is being overseen by former Strike Squad captain Clayton Morris and ex-referee Merere Gonzalves, with the focus on selecting the best futsal players in the country to form the national team to contest the Caribbean leg of World Cup qualification. The 2016 FIFA Futsal World Cup will be held in Colombia from September 10, 2016.

Tonight, there will be five matches, with the opening game taking place between Lions and Bears, the ninth and tenth placed teams on the current league table.

The most anticipated match-up sees current league-leaders Tigers, taking on second placed Jaguars from 10 p.m.
