Futsal is Growing Worldwide, and U.S. could be a Major Player
By Tim Sheldon
ZURICH (6-15-12) - FIFA reported that Futsal
is growing in the world, in different ways in different countries, and we
see from recent interviews and news stories that the U.S. may end up being a major player
in this growth.
Another indication of growth is the news that U.S. Futsal Coach Keith Tozer is working on a plan to send professional indoor players to play in professional leagues in Guatemala and Brazil in order to upgrade the competitiveness of the U.S. Futsal team.
Tozer said this would be an important first step that could lead toward the development of a professional Futsal league in the U.S.
Beyond this, there is a plan being shared from a European Futsal
association that details a system for developing Futsal academies, and that plan is being
read and studied in this country.
It's still very early to estimate the timeline and magnitude of
growth, but the indicators are there, and we may see some key signs of growth in coming
