Birmingham International Futsal Arena hosts rising Premier League Stars
The @Futsal International Birmingham arena has been chosen by the Premier League to host a National Futsal Festival with the rising stars of the Premier League on the weekend of the 28th and 29th January.
Under 11’s from the academies of some of the UK’s top flight clubs will be participating at the event, which will showcase talent playing FIFA’s approved form of small sided football and one of the fastest growing indoor sports on the planet.
Talented youngsters from teams including Birmingham City, Chelsea, West Bromwich Albion, Aston Villa, and Manchester City will be participating and possibly looking perform better than their first team counterparts.
The event also has an international flavour with academy players from Portugal’s leading club Sporting Lisbon also taking place. Both days will kick off at 11am and each team will get the chance to play each other in a round robin style game of Futsal before a knock out stage, which will whittle down the teams before a grand final.
Frank Rodriguez, Managing Director of @Futsal said “It’s an honour for @Futsal to be hosting such talented youngsters and it’s going to be a fantastic chance to see the stars of the future in action and a possible World Cup winning team.
Current world champions Spain have been brought up with the game of Futsal and the weekend will give the children a chance to hone their skills in the same game that stars such as Ronaldo and Fabregas started out with.”
