Futsal tournament at Somersfield

The Bermuda Football Association and CP Athletic Development have partnered to put on the Corporate Futsal Challenge at Somersfield Academy on April 6.

This community event promises a fun atmosphere, with corporate co-ed teams vying for the title.

In addition, the event will highlight players enrolled in Youth Futsal programmes in an exhibition match during the lunch period.

Mark Wade, the BFA president, said: “The benefits of futsal are well documented. Several players already participate in futsal programmes and we can see how their technical development has progressed.

“This partnership with CP Athletic Development presents a great opportunity to grow futsal in Bermuda within the corporate community hopefully increasing the exposure to the Bermuda public.”

Pete Rickards, the CP Athletic Development president, said: “I have been involved in futsal for close to ten years now and I recognise the benefits such as, increased improvement in technical skills, speed of play and movement with and without the ball. I would like to see the game more widely used among our clubs to help with the development of players.”

Don Vickers, the BFA technical development director, added: “This event will showcase a variation of the game of football that can extremely benefit our players if futsal, not indoor football, is coached correctly.

“It is our aim that these benefits are highlighted during this event and that corporate support is garnered for the development of futsal programme structure that will improve all aspects of the game we all love.”

Rickards added: “Part proceeds from this event will help to fund CP Athletic Development's Scholarship Program, which was founded to aid its members in securing overseas education and sporting opportunities, as many families are often financially stretched and unable to afford to send their children on to higher learning.”

The event will run from 10am to 6pm.

The Registration deadline is March 1. For more information visit www.Bermudafa.com or contact Don Vickers at adtdadmin@bermudafootball.com.
