In line with the mission of promoting Futsal in the Philippines, we decided to organize a “mini world cup” tournament instead, adding a little twist to make the event more interesting and colorful. This world cup event will be held annually, in addition to the 4-5 planned tournaments that will be pushing through in 2013. For this 1st tournament, a total of 8 teams participated. However, we are looking to include more teams (16-32) for the future events. In order to make it more realistic in future, there is a plan to require each country represented to have players from that origin. This will also promote unity, harmony and friendship with the various “countries” players.
On the actual day, only 6 teams turned up. The other 2 teams defaulted due to prior engagements of the Aboitiz Cup that resulted in a schedule conflict. Nevertheless, it was a fun-filled tournament, with Japan being crowned the Champions, Germany as Runners-Up, and Brazil as Third place.
This again proves that Cebu is determined and committed to Futsal, and is going all out to bring the sport to the next higher level. The planned tournaments for 2013 will also include a College Futsal League, which is currently in the initial planning stages. The others will follow the PFCWC format, of 4 regional elimination legs leading to the National Finals.
